The pressures of being in an LGBTQ+ relationship
I call upon all Americans to observe this month by fighting prejudice and discrimination in their own lives and everywhere it exists - U.S President Barack Obama, May 31, 2011
June is celebrated each year as LGBT Pride Month. This is to honour the Stonewall riots in Manhattan which happened in 1969. As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognise the impact LGBTQ+ people have had in the world.
We've come a long way since Stonewall, with many countries legalizing same-sex marriage and celebrities such as Laverne Cox and Ellen DeGeneres bringing LGBTQ+ stories into the mainstream media. However, we must acknowledge that there are still many challenges that LGBTQ+ people experience, whether they be related to discrimination, identity, or personal relationships.
How does discrimination affect an LGBTQ+ relationship?
Look forward to hearing your thoughts,

Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤
