19 Jun, 2019
You don't have to be gay before you enjoy the aesthetics, feelings, and atmosphere that comes with a Gay Pride Parade. This years Pride parade is no exception.

For decades now the entire gay community have consensually agreed to set aside June to mark the struggle for freedom, for liberty, for humanity and for what is right. The Stonewall riot of 1969 set the ball rolling for the annual June festival.

Gay Pride should not just be all about, waving of flags, match pass, feasting, and musical concerts. There's more; there are life lessons to learn.

History
The Pride match is historical; it reminds the world how far we've gone, it started from a crisis at Stonewall to a festival with more and more people dropping their archaic homophobic believes. Gay Pride is a blessing to humanity.

Strength in Numbers
It is a beautiful sight when you see millions of people all over the world matching, waving colorful flags, celebrating all for one course, with one voice. It all started with a few hundred people who stood up for their rights at Stonewall about 50 years ago.
