The wait is over and #pride is here yet again for all of us. Many of us await this day out of every year as soon as the festival is over. However, why is Pride such a huge deal? Why do we spend a day celebrating who we are? How many of you know the story of the NYC Police raid on a quiet little inn in Greenwich Village, Manhattan? See in the 1950s and 1960s it was common for raids to happen at gay bars. But when is enough, enough? After the attack on the #Stonewall Inn, residents around protested and rioted against the police. They banded together to fight back because they now longer wanted to fear accepting their sexual orientation. Exactly one year later, the first pride march was held to honor the memory of the riots the year before. It's funny because the one quote that comes to mind comes from the show #Sense8. The transgender character Nomi says "The real violence, the violence I realized was unforgivable, is the violence that we do to ourselves, when we're too afraid to be who we really are." And that's what pride is all about, not being afraid, not fearing to be exactly who you are. There are many of us that have fully embraced who we are. We have found love and acceptance. We have gone through losses, but have been able to gain at the same time. There are some who are just now figuring out that part of them, and it is scary. They don't know who is going to stay or who is going to leave. But they did the hardest thing in the whole world and came out to themselves which is a huge step! So much is yet to come their way and it will be great in the long run. And unfortunately there are those who are still scared to accept who they really are. They hide in the shadows and make excuses for why they just can't come to terms. They fear losing those closest to them because it seems like it would be diving into a hole without knowing what is on the bottom. Just know that if you are one of these people, you're not alone. Take your time, just be careful who you take along on the ride. Hearts are fragile and emotions run high. Don't be scared. Be proud of who you are. There is a whole community waiting just outside your door. #pride #outandproud #lgbt #pridefest201

missmajor1 #translist #transrightsarehumanrights #activist was one of the activists at the #stonewall protest in 1969 that was one of the leading moments in modern #LGBTQIA history, she’s a true inspiration for all especially for trans women and trans women of color. #history follow her!
