Why is Pride Month in June?

“The month of June was chosen for LGBT Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognize the impact LGBT people have had in the world.”

I sit here not sure what else to say because I have so many feeling when it comes to this subject. For one, no matter what the Bible or your religion says, you honestly have zero reason to dislike the LGBTQ. They do nothing to harm anyone, they are not murders or rapists. They are simply a group of people just trying to live in this judgmental world. They love for love it’s that simple.

There is so many cast out by their families and it is heart breaking to know that happens. Simply over who they love or may love…

If you are a parent to a member of the LGBTQ community I urge you to first love and support them, ask questions if you need to, be respectful, let them know you love them and are here for them.

I hope these site help you if you need them. Please share them to help others as well.

Here’s the thing, we have kids. We are the ones responsible for loving them and raising them. They will love who they love and it is up to us parents to let them know they deserve love and its okay. The suicide rate among youth LGBTQ is THREE times higher than that of a heterosexual teen. Suicide is already the 2nd leading cause of teen deaths, lets not increase that.. the help them to see love and support them.
