Let's Celebrate Pride Month
In case you haven’t heard, June is Pride Month, all across the world. Marriage is of huge importance to the Pride movement, and we’re happy to support and celebrate all couples.
After all, love is love, and any couple, regardless of gender or sexuality, should be able to get married.
So let’s break down why Pride is so important to celebrate!
LGBTQ includes you too!
The Acronym LGBTQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transexual, Queer and Questioning. But the spectrum keeps growing, and this movement also includes Intersex, Asexual and Allies (that’s YOU). Even if you don’t consider yourself part of Pride, as an ally, your support is just as important.
So what are we celebrating?
LGBTQ pride is about celebrating your true and authentic self, despite discrimination. It’s a beautiful celebration of confidence and community for a group of people who have historically been shunned.
In Canada, couples are able to marry, adopt children and have any job they choose. These simple freedoms aren’t available to the LGBTQ community across the world. That’s why it’s important to raise our voice and let the world know that we care about this community and want them to be treated with equal respect!
How to support LGBTQ as you plan your wedding
You can always find wedding vendors that are open allies to the LGBTQ community, like The Bridal Guide. The more you support inclusive vendors, the more accepting and open the wedding industry will become. As it should be.
So happy Pride month ladies, gentleman and everyone in between. Let’s celebrate love all together 🙂
