my pride month in a nutshell (thank you all) | pride month day 29

June 29, 2020

FREE WRITING

9

one thing i learned
from this month of pride
is that i'm not alone
and i should not be afraid
to be me

little things like
rainbow flags flown from houses
or rainbow painted stones in storefronts
have made me smile
and i know i am surrounded by love

online the pride flag profile pictures
made me realize just how vast
our community really is
and that i will always be backed
by someone

on write the world
all the amazing comments
and people who have defended me
makes me feel so loved
and i couldn't thank this community
enough

in my family
little steps have been made
i'm getting a binder
i'm getting a haircut
i'm allowed to express my pride
i'm being called by my preferred pronouns
above all
i am still loved

this pride month
has been the first pride month
where i'm out of the closet
and it feels
amazing
lowercase intentional.
this will be the last piece in my pride series since tomorrow is the last day of pride, and i will be compiling all the pieces together. remember, you can always comment a pride piece of your own to be included.
important note of gratitude:
this pride month has been the best so far. i'm out of the closet and feeling great. i'm still dysphoric, but so much less than before. i'm forever grateful to everyone who's helped with this transition, simply by a kind word or the correct pronoun. when i joined wtw, i presented as a girl, and i'm so so glad i can be true to myself on here now. this community played an enormous part in helping me figure myself out, and has been there for me in my lowest points. it's thanks to all of you that i'm able to write this today. i love you all, and remember to stay proud! i'd love to know how your pride month has been, so comment below!
