Pride: The journey and the destination
Although June commemorates the destination of LGBTQ Pride, less credit is given to the journey that many have taken (or are still on) to get there. It’s a long process of self-discovery, acceptance and eventually, self-love; and as the saying goes, “It’s the journey, not the destination”. For many who take on this journey, meeting various people along the way is what teaches them the most about themselves and the world. In other words, diversity enriches our lives with new perspectives and solutions to challenges.
