However, this weekend is PRIDE! It is important for all to stand in solidarity with the community – use your straight privilege to help those who are under siege.
In addition, if you are in the LGBTQIA+ community, try to embrace your identity amongst the hatred to which you are subjected in these trying times. It's great to be gay! (Speaking from someone who is, I think it's fantastic.) It's so difficult in times like these - when you are being attacked for whom you love - to embrace your identity, but the point of this weekend is celebrate who you are. No one chooses to be LGBTQIA+, but if you can, be proud of who you are. Be proud of how far we have come, and try to work towards further progress.
And, if you're homophobic, stop being a prick.
