A TEXT POST

So I just bombed you guys with literally over 100 photos from pride yesterday.

And for me it was a great year! It was only my second pride, but for me it came at an amazing moment.

And I’m going to tell the world why I need pride. :)

I need pride because my mom believes that there’s something with me, and that I need to see a doctor to “cure the queer.” That I’m in sin because I chose to stop repressing myself.

My dad told me not a week past that, contrary to what the media is trying to portray, the majority of people are still against lgbt+ and society will always be against us.

My family believes that it’s perfectly okay to ban my partner from coming to family gatherings, but are surprised and offended when I choose not to attend because of it.

I’ve had close friends abandon me because I couldn’t contain it any longer.

My church still teaches that I should come to Jesus to be “healed” of my queerness. 

This is why I, a queer, Christian girl, needs pride. Because in 2013, this is still happening. 

And this year, Pride made all the difference.
