A lot of my friends are celebrating Pride today in Edinburgh at a wonderful parade and a tonne of awesome parties. I’m celebrating Pride today on my couch (and Instagram Stories, see above) because my body is in literally-cannot mode so going-places-and-doing-things is not accessible to me.
To anyone else who would love to be at Pride celebrations but can’t be for whatever reason, you are still valid. To anyone who can’t come out because it would put your safety or your life at risk, you are still valued. To anyone who is questioning and discovering your own identity, you are still accepted. To anyone who feels isolated or distant from your community, you are still loved.
You are already perfect – whoever, whatever and wherever you are. Pride is not just a parade ❤
