Celebrating Pride In 2023

Earth Song Jewelry LGBTQIA Pride Month 2023
 

This is an interesting year to celebrate Pride Month here in the United States. On the one hand, LGBTQIA+ people have made a lot of strides toward equality and equity over the last decade. At the same time, the last year, and indeed, the last several years, have also been marked by increasing anti LGBTQ vitriol, and the passing of many laws targeted at trans people, drag queens, and the LGBTQ community more broadly.

One of the incredible strengths of the LGBTQIA+ community in the United States is and has always been resilience in the face of adversity.

One of the legacies of the LGBTQIA+ community is the ability to carve out a niche in the world, giving the community places of peace, self-expression, and the freedom to find and celebrate your individuality.

This year, perhaps more than most, LGBTQ Pride, Queer Pride, is defined by defiance. By standing up against violence and bigotry, and saying loudly, proudly, and often that the Queer community exists.

Pride in 2023 is about reaffirming that you are not going anywhere. That you have the right to take up space, to be yourself, and to express yourself privately and publicly.

While not a member of the LGBTQ community myself, I did want to make a post supporting the community, and standing in solidarity this month, and every month.

I don’t know if I will have it ready for Pride this year, but I am also working on something special for the LGBTQ community and allies. I can’t wait to share it with you.

In the meantime. Happy Pride! Stand strong, and know that you are not alone.
