Join the community to continue the conversation today. June is recognized as LGBTQ History month in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, so far. During this celebratory month, cities all over host their own gay pride parades. These events are filled with love and support for LGBTQ members and allies. However, this colorful celebration is a little gloomy for those who are not out of the closet yet. These LGBTQ people are not out of the closet yet and have mixed feelings when pride month rolls around. Their confessions prove that it's still not easy for those struggling to be open and honest about their true identities. May these stories remind you that love is love, and love trumps hate.

Ugh!

It’s hard being in the closet during pride month. I see everyone being so happy about it and I’m not able to share

Maybe next year you can be out!

The awesome moment when your homophobic mother has to walk near the pride parade with her closeted pan/fluid daughter (me!) and bi nephew...Oh, the little things in life.

One day soon!

I’m honestly so glad it’s pride month. It makes me happy to see how much everyone can express themselves for who they are. I can't wait to get out of the closet and join them one day.

Time to move!

It's pride month and I've been in the closet for 10 years. I thought about coming out and saying 'Alright I'm gay' but damn this Christian community will shun me.
