Pride is important because it gives everyone that sense that they belong. No barriers, no trouble, just simply letting people be who they want to be, with who they want to be and party like they want to. It’s really important that people find the place that they belong, and Pride really gives us that platform to do so. People fight battles constantly in the LGBT+ community, and by walking the streets of local cities, towns and villages giving the message that’s it’s okay, it’s okay to be that little bit different, it makes those steps into making a truly diverse, inclusive and sparklier world to live in.
* I appreciate sparklier isn’t a word but it felt right
