Christopher Street Liberation Day on June 28, 1970, marked the first anniversary of the Stonewall riots with the march, which was the first Gay Pride march in U.S. history, and covered 51 blocks to Central Park.
Let’s talk at what LGBTQIA+ means
L = Lesbian: females finding females attractive, only
G = Gay: Male’s finding Males attractive, only
B = Bisexual: 2, finding two genders attractive, originally this means finding both sexes sexually attractive, but some have made this to just mean multiple persons.
This also gives us Pansexual. Pan meaning many, though under this generally means finding a person sexually attractive, rather than gender
T = Transgender: a person born one gender but being the other
Q = Queer or Questioning: which is an overall queer identity or one questioning their identity or sexuality
I = Intersex: person born with both, in many different degrees, genders
A = Asexual: not having sexual desire
This is not to confuse for Ally, as an Ally is someone that stands WITH the community not IN the community.
+ = that there is more sexualities and genders under the umbrella. Genderfluid, nonbinary, demisexual, the demi/panromantic, greyace, demi-girl/boy ect.
Please shout out your sexuality or gender in the comments, let us know (if you’re comfortable, of course), especially if I’ve missed you.
Remember National Coming Out Day is an annual LGBT awareness day observed on October 11, to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people (and sometimes other groups typically grouped within the LGBT community) to "coming out of the closet"
But please remember you DO NOT have to come out if you aren’t comfortable with it. You are not obligated to come out at any point to anyone. People may and that’s up to them but coming out is a very personal moment in your life and it’s not to be rushed into. Also, please make sure you’re safe to do so. I know it’s hard. it’s a difficult road to walk at times, but in the end, what makes you happy is accepting yourself no matter who you are and what you do in life not how others feel or think or even how much other people know about you.
