This month of June is Pride Month, where people in the LGBTQIA+ community celebrate themselves and share their sexual orientation or gender identity. June has been considered as such since 1981, which is why June has been set aside as a month for celebrating diversity and equality. In this article, we will talk about some ways to celebrate Pride Month with some informative facts about the LGBTQIA+ community.

The LGBT activism also helps fight for equal rights issues within our society today like marriage equality and employment protection under the law. Gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgender individuals in the U.S. have the right to marry as of 2015. However, there are still many countries around the world that do not allow same-sex marriage.

According to studies, there is a higher rate of suicidal tendencies among gay teens than any other group in their adolescent stage. This includes teenagers who live in environments where they are accepted by families and friends. LGBTQIA+ activists across the globe started working to help reduce this problem through education programs in schools as well as online resources like social media pages like Facebook and Twitter accounts that talk about issues within this community.

Another way that LGBTQIA+ activists are helping reduce the amount of suicide in this community is by creating support groups and events called “Pride Festivals.” These pride festivals allow individuals to share the love and support of their community to help each other.

Being part of the LGBTQIA+ communities is not just about being able to celebrate your sexuality or gender identity in a romantic relationship or marriage. Being part of that community has a lot more benefits like acceptance from families, friends and strangers.

Many people from all different walks of life will be joining in on the festivities this month; however, not everyone from the community is invited to every activity. It is important to keep in mind that while these events are meant to celebrate diversity and acceptance, there are still many groups of people who have lost loved ones because they were gay.

LGBTQIA+ pride parades are being held across the country in cities like New York City, San Francisco, Atlanta and Los Angeles. These celebrations include drag shows, songs and performances as well as body painting and even clothing contests. These events are a way of showing love for others with the same identity as you.

The events also include more political or serious topics like gender identity, homophobia in schools and even the right to vote. These events are a way of telling the government and your community that you are just as equal as anyone else.

The LGBTQIA+ community has lost many lives to hate crimes, bullying and suicide. It is important to learn more about this issue so we can start holding people accountable for their actions. Many things such as changing the Gender Recognition Act which allows transgender individuals to change their sex on official documents without having gender reassignment surgery has made a huge positive impact on this community.

According to the Human Rights Campaign, we are a long way from seeing equal rights in every country in the world. LGBTQIA+ communities still have a long way to go. With a lot of supporters and friends, we can also start saving lives by fighting for those without any support or even those who wish to die.

In this month when there is a chance for more people to be accepting as well as different identities within the LGBTI community, it is important that we do not forget those who cannot celebrate because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
