FAQ – What is Pride?
The history besides pride food ideas & Recipes
As much as we love all the colourful, mesmerizing and delicious recipes, there is a deeper reason, why we are celebrating PRIDE. Let’s look into all questions in why pride is exactly, why it is SO important, that we spread awareness, and all other questions there are.
If you have any more questions or like to add anything, please feel free to comment below 🙂
Pride month is in June of every year.
People all over the world, are coming together to celebrate in June for LGBTQ+ Pride month because that was the month of the stonewall riots.
The month of June was therefore chosen to honour and commemorate those stonewall riots.
Officially three presidents of the United States declared June as “Pride Month”. The first President who declared “Gay and Lesbian Pride Month” was Bill Clinton in 1999 and 2000.
The reason why pride month is even a thing is because of what happened at the end of June in 1969 during the Stonewall riots
In 1969 the police raided a gay bar, called the Stonewall Inn, on a Saturday morning, in New York City.
The police turned violent in the end, as many neighbours and people got involved and fought back.
This event got the ball moving, and kicked off the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBTQ rights all around the world, starting in the united states.
Pride and pride month is important for many reasons.
On one hand the LGBTQ+ community is still having to face unacceptable stigma and discrimination all over the world. Unfortunately also homophobia, biphobia and transphobia are still happening way too many times.
And this it’s time to stop this.
Pride is an important stand against discrimination, injustice and violence towards lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people.
Plus any other identity.
To make anyone feel accepted, for who they are.
Also pride month is important to promote self-affirmation and equality rights. It’s also needed to increase visibility as a social group while celebrating sexual diversity.
Each colour of the rainbow flag has its own, deep meaning to the LGBTQ+ community. The rainbow flag is a symbol for LGBTQ+ and represents the diversity of human sexuality and gender.
The “regular” or “old” LGBTQIA+ pride flag used to have 6 colours
(Red= Life, Orange = Healing, Yellow = New Ideas, Green = Prosperity, Blue = Serenity, Violet = Spirit).
Since the flag has been redesigned, there have been 5 colours added to the flag.
While the new flag is also called Progress Pride Flag,
Black/Brown: Stands for People of Colour.
Blue/Pink/White: Stands for Trans Community.
The original rainbow flag was designed by activist Gilbert Baker.
The first flag was created in 1978 and was hand-stitched and dyed with help of volunteers.
But since about 2018, the rainbow flag has been slightly new designed and new colours have been added to its rainbow colours, by Daniel Quasar.
5 more colours were added next to them, stacked in the shape of triangles. To ensure everyone is included.
Besides many people who fought in the Stonewall riots were people of colour and also trans, like the activist Marsha P. Johnson.
Brenda Howard, a bisexual American, is also called the “Mother of Pride” because she organised the first public march for gay pride.
The parade in America inspired other cities all over the world to also participate in Pride parades ever since.
