Happy Pride 2021!
It’s a strange way to start a Pride post when Pride starting as protest. However here we are some 50 years later there are reasons to be happy. Here we are legally married with a beautiful daughter that we are both parents to. With a second on the way conceived, like Annabelle, through the wonder of science.
Every June brings new Pride events and new ways to bring awareness and visibility to the LGBTQ+ community. June also ends up being one of our busiest months. We choose to spend the month sharing LGBTQ+ owned businesses, charities and accounts. We know just how important visibility is.
This year we have also been given opportunities to talk about our family and share our journey so far.
Have you heard of 30 days of Pride?
In case you missed that June is Pride month you will have seen plenty of rainbows appearing all over the place to remind you. From brands avatars going rainbow to shops putting out ‘Pride’ ranges, companies decorating their windows with Pride decor to employees sporting rainbow lanyards you should have spotted a rainbow or two.
Well everyday is Pride in our house and we do what we can to to show how proud we are to be part of LGBT community as often as we can. It’s a big part of why we share our lives online, we want to show our lives are normal. That love is possible whoever you are. That families are not exclusively for heterosexual couples. That we exist every month not just in Pride month.
However for Pride month we decided to record a quick video answering the questions being shared on Instagram over this month.
