pride month stories
Start writing a post

The summer so far has blessed us with many things; the Harry Styles Tour, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj dropping new music, and the (possible) engagement of Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber. But one thing I'm most thankful for this summer is the month of June, or as I like to see it, the best month of the year- Pride Month! During the month of June, cities all over the United States will be celebrating the history, tribulations, and equality of same sex marriage and love over the next couple of weeks, with festivals, parades, concerts, and many other events! Since the passing of the Same Sex Marriage Law in June of 2015, hundreds of thousands of couples have been able to start their lives with the person they love- regardless of gender or preferred sexual orientation!

Many stories of the community are never heard, but today that changes. here are some stories from members of the LGBTQ+ communities, their stories, experiences, and what makes them so special!

Cody, Bisexual/Queer

"He was confused and still has questions to this day, but he always makes it known that he loves me no matter what"

Mark, Bisexual

"Pride is living your best life without feeling shame for who you are and who you love"

Jenny, Pansexual

"It's who I am and the people that matter to me respect that."

Hunter, Gay

"opening up and being true to yourself is so important..."

Anonymous, Lesbian

"pride is important because it allows individuals to embrace and embody who they are..."

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
