For those of us who aren’t part of it, or haven’t taken a deep dive into its history, all of that pizazz can be quite intimidating. But look no further! In this article we’ll bring you down to Earth with an entertaining explanation and hopefully some laughs along with the way.
Part 1: The History
When you think about it, LGBT really isn’t just one acronym. It’s a mouthful of letters representing overlapping identities which includes gay , lesbian , transgender , nonbinary people et al… but how did they come together in one colorful pride-filled community? That’s where PRIDE comes in! Or better yet:
