Pride 2016

I’m a day late, but this needs to be posted. Yesterday was national pride day, and it is so important that everyone recognises the importance of this day because it symbolises two things; how far we’ve come in reaching equality in our society (because there’s a lot of people that have done a really cracking job in getting us to where we are today) but also how far we have to go. Everyone should be accepted in our society, whoever they are, whichever group they identify with the most, whatever they look like and no matter who they love. Diversity is such an important part of our society; it’s what makes us interesting as a community, and I think allows to function better as a society. No one should have the right to make someone feel as if they are less, just because they are different.

This video brought tears to my eyes, I recommend you watch it (you’ve probably already seen it). It perfectly shows everything I’ve tried to put into words. Love sees no race, religion or gender – so why on earth should we?

    I think it’s an issue because of religions….
    When you look at very little children they have no issue with same sex or different sex couples; to them it’s just a “couple”….but, as they grow through religion then they are introduced to what is acceptable and what is not. sad.
