GAY PRIDE MARCH CARACAS 2009 / Photography by Aaron Sosa

Gay Pride March

LGBT pride or gay pride is the concept that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity. The movement has three main premises: that people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity, that diversity is a gift, and that sexual orientation and gender identity are inherent and cannot be intentionally altered. The use of the abbreviated gay pride and pride have since become mainstream and shorthand expressions inclusive of all individuals in various LGBT communities.

The word pride is used in this case an antonym for shame, which has been used to control and oppress LGBT persons throughout history. Pride in this sense is an affirmation of ones self and the community as a whole. The modern "pride" movement began after the "Stonewall riots" in 1969. Instead of backing down to unconstitutional raids by New York Police, gay people in local bars fought back. While it was a violent situation it also gave the underground community the first sense of communal pride in a very well publicized incident. From the yearly parade that commemorated the anniversary of the Stonewall riots began a national grassroots movement. Today many countries around the world celebrate LGBT pride. The pride movement has furthered the cause of gay rights by lobbying politicians, registering voters and increasing visibility to educate on issues important to LGBT communities. LGBT pride advocates work for equal "rights and benefits" for LGBT people.

Symbols of LGBT pride include the LGBT rainbow flag, butterfly, the Greek lambda symbol, and the pink as well as black triangles reclaimed from their past use.


Marcha del Orgullo Gay

El Día Internacional del Orgullo LGBT (lesbiana, gay, bisexual y transgénero), también conocido como Día del Orgullo Gay o simplemente Orgullo Gay (en inglés, gay pride) es una serie de eventos que cada año los colectivos homosexuales celebran de forma pública para instar por la tolerancia y la igualdad de los gays, lesbianas, bisexuales y transexuales. Tal fiesta tiene lugar en torno al 28 de junio o bien el primer sábado posterior al 28 de junio, fecha en que se conmemoran los disturbios de Stonewall (Nueva York, EE. UU., 1969), que marcan el inicio de la liberación homosexual. En algunos países la fecha original puede cambiar en caso de coincidencia con otros eventos locales muy importantes (eventos masivos, elecciones políticas o posibilidades de leyes trascendentes para los homosexuales).

A.C Orgullo GLBT, Bloque Socialista Unido de Liberación Homosexual, Lambda Venezuela, Transvenus de Venezuela, Unión Afirmativa y el Grupo de Diversidad Sexual de la Universidad Simón Bolívar, estas y otras son todas las asociaciones que hacer posible en Venezuela la Marcha del Orgullo Gay, este año 2009 se celebró por 9ª vez consecutiva congregando a muchas personas marchando a favor de la Diversidad Sexual.
