What have you done to truly celebrate PRIDE?

At my work place, I realized most if not all of them were not really aware of the significance of the Pride Month for people in my community.  So I decided to share the celebrations with them, rather than leave them in the dark about our struggle for recognition, equality and respect.

I bought a very large pizza for everyone to share and enjoy and to those who were interested, shared with them the story of the Stonewall Riots of 1969 and how it became an iconic event in the fight for equality.

True, this ain't much.  Yes, maybe most of them didn't really care.  But who knows, maybe some of them do and some of them suddenly realize why it is important for people like me to always desire equal rights.

Pride is about never stopping the fight to be seen as equals.
It isn't about making a quick buck just cause you know many gay people love to party.

What have YOU done to truly celebrate Pride?

Happy Pride 2012!
