LGBT Pride

Cyndi Lauper at NYC Pride!

The month of June is LGBT pride, and Cincinnati’s pride happens to be this weekend. Sadly I am unable to go, but I want to mention how amazing it is to have such a celebration here! All around the world awareness is trying to be brought to people to teach love and ACCEPTANCE! It’s so moving when people look at other people as equals, instead of judging them by their color, income, sexuality or status. I think Pride is an opportunity for people to not only educate themselves, but to also have fun!

The battle for equal rights for the LGBT community has been on going and unless you live under a rock, you’ve heard about it. I read one person’s comment the other day on a Gay Rights article that really moved me… they said, “What are Gay Rights? Doesn’t rights imply that they are for everyone?!” I couldn’t agree more. How can a government and society pick and choose who gets what rights? It’s either all or nothing. If a man and woman can get married, then why can’t a man and a man or a woman and a woman?

It’s silly to me that people feel the need to take away the rights and the livelihood of a group of people because they don’t agree with it. I think people need to stop being so judgmental and be more accepting. You don’t have to agree with a life style to allow someone else to live it. You don’t have to be a vegetarian to allow someone else to be. You don’t have to like hip hop music to allow someone else to.The point being that if you don’t like it, then don’t do it. You have no right to stop others from doing what makes them happy, as long as it isn’t harming anyone (hurting your ego, doesn’t count).

Go out into the world today, everyday and be loving and open…. you will be amazed at how happy you can be, by letting others be who they are!

All the best!

  1. Gay rights, women’s rights, handicap access, racial equality, seems simple to me. But it comes down to everyone being awake and aware in our world, not just the small circle we each spin within. Best wishes to us all, but as long as old men set the laws and religious dogma, their really isn’t much hope for true awaking of equality for all.

    • I agree Sharyn, It does seem simple. Sometimes I wonder how some people even consider taking away others rights or judging the way that they do. I hope that someday soon peoples minds can be opened, the way ours have been opened. It may seem like it’s getting no where but the more seeds that we plant, the more these new ideas will grow. So keep it up :-)
