Hello! Apologies for my lack of blogging towards the end of this week but I have been on holiday. Again? Yup, but this time to Wales.
I’ve just read an article about pride and the changes since the first pride event. It’s safe to say, a lot has changed since then.
I don’t think it’s always true that any representation is good representation but there is definitely a lot more representation now then there was 45 years ago.
However, looking back at pride pictures from the late 70s I don’t think much has changed. Yes, more people now take part in pride and it’s wider publicised, celebrated and accepted but people are still doing the same things and wanting the same things.
People are still taking to the streets with banners and posters and flags, grinning and posing for photos. People are still campaigning for equal rights, though the rights they are fighting for is different.
We’ve come a long way but still have quite a way to go but one thing is for sure, we’ll be proud as we continue on that journey.
