LGBT pride or gay pride is the concept that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity. The movement has three main premises: that people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity, that diversity is a gift, and that sexual orientation and gender identity are inherent and cannot be intentionally altered. The use of the abbreviated gay pride and pride have since become mainstream and shorthand expressions inclusive of all individuals in various LGBT communities.
The word pride is used in this case an antonym for shame, which has been used to control and oppress LGBT persons throughout history. Pride in this sense is an affirmation of ones self and the community as a whole. The modern "pride" movement began after the "Stonewall riots" in 1969. Instead of backing down to unconstitutional raids by New York Police, gay people in local bars fought back. While it was a violent situation it also gave the underground community the first sense of communal pride in a very well publicized incident. From the yearly parade that commemorated the anniversary of the Stonewall riots began a national grassroots movement. Today many countries around the world celebrate LGBT pride. The pride movement has furthered the cause of gay rights by lobbying politicians, registering voters and increasing visibility to educate on issues important to LGBT communities. LGBT pride advocates work for equal rights and benefits for LGBT people.

Any smart person knows homophobes are honestly plain stupid. They complain that gays "flaunt" their sexuality, yet if a man & woman kiss it's not seen as flaunting. In fact every argument they try to use is EASILY flawed. They just can't accept that gay people exist so they go around being ignorant. And phobes are the ones who brought gay pride & parades to themselves. They obviously love it too because they are still spreading homophobia!

Merrily cramming sexual deviancy down someone's throat
Boasting tolerance, intolerantly denouncing intolerance, their statistically insignificant gay pride ranting demanded ALL others accept their queer world view while decrying dissent as hate.

When a guy takes pride in his "nice" body, taking any opportunity to show it off.  On myspace taking a picture of ones abs lifting their shirt (douche pose), or losing ones shirt when it would be completely unnecessary, as in a recreational sport or work activity that requires minimal physical exertion. 
I respect your gay pride but put you shirt back on it's like 60 degrees.

In order to show off my gay pride, I'll take a picture of my sweet stomach and post it on myspace for everyone to see.

Being proud of your sexual impurity and lust. Rather than being proud of your heritage, history, and ethnicity-like blacks and hispanics- you're being proud of who or what you sleep with.
Gay Pride is just a sign that we as people have no morals or dignity
