Introduction

 

Do you remember your first pride event? I remember mine distinctively and how I felt in that moment I stepped down the street of the pride festival. It was like I was looking at my family, the family I had longed for, for so long. Despite knowing other queer people existed I always felt alone until I was at my first pride event. In that moment, I realized there were so many of us out there and so many of us fighting the hard fight. Pride events are meant to bring community together and for many it’s the only time of the year that they get to be a part of that community. Despite many places around the world not being able to have those events this year we continue to celebrate and have different kinds of events. Get ready because all the pride events to come are waiting for you to lift your head up and find the community you have been longing for.
