Today’s Action: Support Pride Events Around the Country!

Hundreds of Pride events kick off around the world in June. These parades and gatherings are celebrations of LGBTQ+ communities, a commemoration of history, and rallying for present-day and future fights for freedom and equality.

Heterosexual and cisgendered allies are encouraged to attend Pride, adding their voices to the continuing fight for LGBTQ+ rights and space in our communities. However, as a heterosexual/cis guest, it’s important to attend in the right way – and here are a few tips!

  1. Respect the history! Pride emerged out of the Stonewall riots in June 1969, at a time when many cities had laws against homosexuality in public and private businesses. When police raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, NYC (a traditionally “safe” space for the LGBTQ+ community), two trans women of color led the uprising. The following months and years saw the formal creation of gay activist groups and more public protests. Pride today is an annual commemoration of the Stonewall riots which started it all.
  2. Practice consent! For most of you, this means not taking photos without permission. Pride parades can be fun, playful places – but expressions of identity are not costumes, and attendees are not there for your entertainment and consumption. In other words, please don’t post photos of strangers on your Instagram to prove your parade attendance.
  3. Be prepared to accept it all, or don’t bother attending! If you’ve got any hang-ups about certain lifestyles within the LGBTQ+ community, Pride events are not for you (until you’ve done a bit more personal work on the topic). Please don’t attend as an asterix-ally.
  4. Do your research! Brush up on vocabulary and pronouns – and be prepared to ask what a person’s preferred pronoun is if you don’t already know.
  5. Remember: It isn’t about you! So don’t make it about you. When in doubt, listen, support, and self-educate. (And don’t try to use it as an opportunity to fulfill your own straight fantasies about magical threesomes.)
