This year Pride will be like no other. Every Pride event and parade has been cancelled. Many cities are holding virtual Pride events.
I love Pride. I love the month of June, even though we don’t celebrate Pride where I live until August. I love all the Pride gear, wearing it, seeing what other people have bought and are wearing. This year it seems no one will see it.
But still, there is new Pride gear to purchase. I already have so much, you wouldn’t think I’d want or need more. But I couldn’t resist these shoes. I couldn’t decide which ones to buy so I bought them all! I may return one or two but don’t’ be surprised if I keep all three!
And maybe I’ll do something fun like wear a different shoe on each foot. No one will see them in person, but I have a phone which has a camera and I will take pictures! And I will proudly hang my rainbow flag for the entire month of June.
It seems that rainbows have become a symbol of hope during this pandemic. The rainbow flag has been a symbol of pride and hope for the future for many years. The rainbow colors always make me smile so I think I’ll be wearing these shoes every day in June just to bring some additional joy into my life.
How will you be celebrating Pride this year? How will you make it joyous?
