Gay means happy and nothing makes me happier than being myself. I hope that everyone can be happy to be who they are. Pride means esteem in an achievement. Being gay is not an achievement, it’s just the way some of us are born. In the world we live in today, there are some who tell us there’s something wrong with the way we were born. The celebration of pride is the celebration of overcoming the attack from society and learning how to be ourselves. In the future, I hope there will be no need for pride parades, just gay parades, because… you know… we love parades!
