Happy pride! ๐ŸŒˆโœจ

Always remember that queerness comes in all forms & your identity is valid no matter where you are in your journey ๐Ÿ’–

Here are some gentle reminders for pride month & beyond ๐ŸŒˆ

Alt text spoilered:
It's time to celebrate queer joy! ๐ŸŒˆ

Gentle reminders for pride month:
  • You are queer enough
  • It's okay if you're not up for pride events this year
  • Your gender identity is up to you
  • You deserve to feel safe
  • It's okay that you haven't come out yet
  • You still have time to figure out your identity
  • It's okay to distance yourself from people who don't accept you
  • You are allowed to be confident in yourself
  • It's okay if you haven't found your community yet

    Our local police and fire department were there again this too giving away items. I got my pronouns badge from the police stall. Last year they were giving away fans. Oo I forgot to include the fans in my pic oh well haha ๐Ÿ˜‚. They have a lot of Welsh writing on them xd.

    I also went to my citys pride for the first time it was held over the weekend but I went on the Sunday because it can get quite busy and loud on the Saturday. I had the best day ever and I met a lot of new people and made friends. They also have a quiet corner too so if I got overwhelmed I go could inside and de-stress for a bit before going back out into the open. <3

    @Sunshine12 I got a fidget toy, stickers, flag, lanyard, magnet, wristband (which ended up getting tight on my wrist so had to cut off but found way of wearing ๐Ÿ˜‚). I actually got some pictures below. Some of the stuff I got I haven't included in the pic because they got names and locations n stuff xd. The set of pins I got was a birthday gift from both my parents as my birthday was yesterday ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜. Also the stickers and the badge which reads stimming world is from a local charity I help out with and attend their group sessions. They have an esty and website for artists who work at the charity who identify as neurodiverse. So when I bought the stickers and badge the money given goes back into the charity to help support neurodiverse adult and the employees.

    oooo they all look like such cool stuff to get!! it's also really good that they give money to charity for it <3 i know this is late but did u have a good bday ? haha :)
