My pride month retrospective: I've been hearing a lot of things about "visibility" and that pride is about "being seen" this year.
I think we need to surpass that.
Pride shouldn't just be about being seen, it should be about being heard.
Being seen means people know we exist. Being heard means people know what we want.
lgbtq people being relegated to a spectacle to be seen is infantilizing and objectifying (think "women/children are meant to be seen, not to be heard").
This mindset reinforces the idea that pride shouldn't just be boxed into a 30 day annual event. We should be loud and proud all year round until we're listened to and beyond that. Also the idea that pride isn't just a vanity fair but a time for activism and speaking up.
"Pride was a riot" after all.
Being heard rejects corporate pandering. It's not enough for our flags to be put up on company logos. I want trans health care, good representation, equal treatment in the workplace, end to homelessness & conversion therapy & discrimination.
Pride is about being seen? Of course we deserve to be seen. We also deserve to be heard, for our stories to be told, and for our demands to be listened to.
This is just something that's been on my mind. Happy #GayWrathMonth
I'll probably still post here occasionally despite the new birdsite account.
