Faces of Pride

Cheston Shim

Cheston Shim, Malaysia, 23 years old

Pride can bring different meanings to different people. As for me, PRIDE stands for 5 keywords: Protect, Realize, Interact, Defend and Educate.

We all live on the same planet, why should there be discrimination? I am proud of who I am and I am here to encourage those out there too to be proud of yourself!

fogcityjohn Is LGBT Pride Still Significant Nowadays? If So, How?

Pride celebrations remain as necessary today as they have ever been. The meager progress on issues vital to the GLBT community from our Democratic president and Democratic Congress shows that it's critically important that we remain not only proud, but out and loud. So let's all resolve to make enough noise this June that even Washington, D.C., will hear us.


What's Your Opinion?
Do you celebrate LGBT Pride in your city or town?
Yes! I'm out there every year with my rainbows on.
No! I'm over it -- Pride is for tourists, politicians and the newly out.
I would, but there are no Pride events or celebrations in my area.
