Celebrating Pride Month 2023

June is Pride Month, a time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and its many achievements. Pride Month is also a time to remember the work that still needs to be done to achieve full equality for LGBTQ+ people.

Pride Month began in 1970, one year after the Stonewall riots. The Stonewall riots were a series of protests that took place in New York City after a police raid on a gay bar. The riots are considered to be the start of the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement.

Pride Month is a time to celebrate the progress that has been made in the fight for LGBTQ+ equality. 

In many countries around the world, LGBTQ+ people are still persecuted and discriminated against. In some countries, same-sex marriage is illegal, and LGBTQ+ people can be imprisoned or even killed for their identity.

Pride Month is a time to remember the work that still needs to be done to achieve full equality for LGBTQ+ people around the world. It is also a time to celebrate the progress that has been made and to reaffirm our commitment to fighting for equality.

Why Visibility is Important

Visibility is important for LGBTQ+ people because it helps to break down stereotypes and misconceptions. When LGBTQ+ people are visible in the public eye, it helps to normalise their identities and make them more visible to the general public - this is one of the many reasons why RCREW exists. This can help to reduce discrimination and violence against LGBTQ+ people.

Rights for LGBTQ+ People Are Not a Given

The rights of LGBTQ+ people are not a given. In many countries around the world, LGBTQ+ people are still persecuted and discriminated against. It is important to remember that the progress that has been made in the fight for LGBTQ+ equality is fragile and can be easily reversed. This is a worrying trend. We must continue to fight for the rights of LGBTQ+ people around the world.

How You Can Celebrate Pride Month

There are many ways to celebrate Pride Month. You can attend a Pride parade or festival, donate to an LGBTQ+ organisation or charity, or simply wear something rainbow-coloured. Check out our Progress Pride bracelet, one of our top sellers, and something you can wear all year round.
