Gay Pride: Made For Spreading Love & Celebrating One’s Identity Openly!


Gay Pride is something that makes one quote: “Love him and let him love you! Do you think anything else under heaven really matters?”


Bhaisaab, iss shabd ke piche kyu padd jate ho? Kabhi love ko samajhne ki koshish karo…It is a beautiful world!


Gay is referred to as a homosexual person. Gay is someone sexually attracted to a person of the same-sex person (primarily used for men).

1. History: The word, Gay, is derived from an old French word, Gai, likely derived from German Sources in the 12th century in England. The original meaning of the word refers to the effect of “joyful”, “carefree”, and “bright and showy”.

2. The Early Gay Rights Movement: In 1924, German immigrant Henry Gerber founded the first US Gay Rights Organisation in Chicago. Gerber Group published the first gay-interest newsletter of the country, Friendship and Freedom. Later in 1925, due to policy issues, the group got disbanded.

3. The Pink Triangle: During World War 2, homosexual men were held by Nazin in their concentration camps, attached with Pink Triangle Badge. Later, the same sign was reclaimed as a positive-symbol of celebrating Gay Pride and self-identity by LGBT+.

4. Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell: In 1992, Bill Clinton promised to lift up the ban against gays in the military during his presidential rally. In 1993, he passed the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) policy which allowed gays to serve their country.

5. Indian King Pride: Manvendra Singh Gohil is the first gay prince in-the-world. On 14 March 2006, Coming Out was published, and the news went viral around the world. The prince also runs a charity named Lakshya Trust, which works for the LGBT+ community.

7. LGBT+ culture in India: India has a limited number of LGBT+ communities due to the homophobia of society. To spread Pride, many events are held by the LGBT+ communities.
