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!

Gay pride was an event where gay people would parade in front of the car wash so the soap swirls would make a rainbow on their clothes. Apparently was cancelled due to sexual harassment constituents by illegal aliens wielding lye solvent.
Gay pride was cancelled and better luck next time.

THOM HOGGINS coined the term GAY PRIDE in 1969 +; but one major problem.
In the religiosity PRIDE is considered one of the SEVEN DEADLY SINS and never mind saying "we don't mean it that way and we are ATHIESTS " as religion is a harsh reality and due to the conflict instilled GAY PRIDE VULNERABILITY is quite significant and apparent.
