The London Pride’s annual event, which began 50 years ago, shares the birth year with Gwyneth Paltrow, The Rock and perhaps more appropriately – Time Magazine’s iconic prom queen, Lauren, the icon of the transitional era. Cox was scheduled for July 1, 1969, for the first London Pride to celebrate another anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising three years ago in the summer of Manhattan. That was when Marsha P. Johnson and his cultural opponents confronted an NYPD raid. The floor of the Greenwich Village Bar is publicly considered the backbone of our slap. We owe a debt of gratitude to all these historical heroes this weekend.
B is for black pride.
It does exactly what it says on the ton, exactly. In the 50 years since its inception, the original taste of Pride has come under some pressure. But it’s still alive and well if you look beyond the noise of Oxford Street to find it. Lady Fell’s Black Pride has become a constitutional calendar that should still be seen as a moment of civil rights for anyone looking at the idea of pride. Event LGBTQ + gives people of color and their friends something – where they belong. It’s a warm, enveloping hug. Launched as a counter to the verbal whiteness of the event, Black Pride is significantly free of corporate sponsorship (see below). In the last Black Pride before Code, the decision to reject the Home Office stall in response to the treatment of gay asylum seekers had a real political impact. See also: Trans Pride. Both still have the potential to bring tears to the eyes of anyone who is interested in real collective manifestations of power, together – beauty, beauty and resistance.
C is for corporatization.
Pride party or protest? These are the questions that have hampered this event for over two decades. During the Blair regime – legislation influencing gay inequality – by adopting LGBTQ + and changing the ban on military service, equalizing the age of consent and civil part – the introduction of narcissism. Via – There was a brief moment when it felt like LGBTQ + rights were about to be settled. It was as if she had won. Yet the need for an event of pride remains. When you live as a minority, giving the city keys and allowing you to think about what it feels like to be in the majority is a collective opportunity to touch utopia. It always seems a bit difficult to entrust all this to the corporate giants who are trying to maintain the consumer values of the 21st century. Counter-argument: If we live in a top-cap corporate world – Italian, shouldn’t LGBTQ + s be entitled to it all? Counter-argument: Can real freedom ever be bought? The mystery continues
D is for dancing.
Sylvester’s ‘You Make Me Fail (Mighty Real)’. Carl Bean’s “I was born this way.” Ultra Net ‘free’. C&C Music Factory’s ‘Pride (A Deep Love)’. Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself’. George Michael’s ‘Outside’. Lady Gaga’s Born This Way. There are some songs that feel like they’ve been crafted for the experience of seeing a queen who came out of the second week of RuPaul’s drag race UK on the back of a spectacular float, at 3pm, make-up miraculously now Is also intact. They are guaranteed to have the earliest records, a milestone in the glorious 50th anniversary celebrations. These are dance instructions, designed with a specific touch to us. They are the voice of pride.
E is for ephemera.
Pride has changed dramatically throughout his life. There are different repetitions of what can pass as a Pride uniform, each with its own recognizable epimera. Seventies: Everyone looks like a young Peter Tachel or John Armstrong, with a love of quilts and folk music on the one hand, and leather and poppers on the other. Eighty-eight: DIY, pin badge wearing, banner waving, Dr. Martin’s stumping, Thatcher’s hate skin – a bold collaboration between Sir, Greenham Common and Bronsky Beat in MA1 jackets. Nineties: Everyone is in the vest for ecstasy and / or combination therapy. The Notes: Sex and the City fans are making their way to March with the Pride Brunch. Now tens? The massive rainbow blast seems to have been directed at art for children’s TV and wig surf. It should never be said that we do not move visually with this moment.
F is for the movie.
From the gritty old BBC bulletins to the testimonials, to the passionate teens provided by the headmaster-ish newscasters who do gender mark make-up tutorials on TikTok, nothing catches the transfer of pride like this on the movie. Watching the Reels of Then there’s Pride, the film itself, a Johnny-like cult classic that resonates with the tearful moment at the start of the AIDS epidemic when a group of activists visit miners in politically extinct Welsh. Possibly gathered at a gay wordbook shop to help the strikers. The role of Bill Neghi in the village – while buttering a barm cake, accidentally leaving his sexuality with Amelda Stanton is nothing short of amazing.
G is for the gay liberation front.
These are the people to whom we owe all the pride of London. They are heroes, transformers, trailblazers and zeitgeist, at least 30 years ahead of them. Before Stone Wall was, grief and anger! And the Mermaids, there was the gay liberation front, the anchor on which pride is turned. The GLF gets nothing more than an immediate breakout of the Sterling redemption course of Tom Robinson’s ‘Glad to be Gay’ course, which was fully presented. Search quickly in their archives. Without GLF, there is no pride.
H is for ‘Happy Pride’!
For one day a year, ‘Haya!’ (Always with an exclamation mark for identification – caching purposes, please) Semi-oppressive, half-raised eyebrows are replaced by decla – ‘Happy Pride!’ (Similarly). It supports Firm Pride as LGBTQ + Christmas.
I am for intersectionality.
As the splits of Black Pride, Trans Pride, Radical Pride, and all the other numerous branches of the Establishment by 2020, the government and the mayor’s sanctioned events only serve to highlight, there is room for everyone in the Pride Parade. Making has been one of the biggest events of recent times. Shift’s Big Bears adding pride to London’s chirping day jamborees. The act of transforming the parade itself into something you ask for, that you turn to, can change it all in one fell swoop, determining democracy who marches and who doesn’t. Clearly the biggest change in queer UK over the last 50 years is the extension of the abbreviation from Lesbian and Gay to LGBTQ + and all its variants. Surely it’s time to start cheering for a pride that reflects this change?
J is for pleasure.
Pride is thought to be about reversing this dilemma. Blaring music. 24-hour stimulation, visual and otherwise. Theater Dis – Identity Game. The main priority of sexuality. The inexperienced tendency of homosexuals to use any excuse to get away from your knocks. One reason is that ‘happiness’ often follows a more complex thread of ‘pride’
K is for children.
Two mothers and / or two parents have the opportunity to take their children to the city and show their children how the rainbow family has become in modern London. But these other children are showing that the non-stop new generation of early adolescents is trucking with all their nervous youthful energy, the children after Article 28 who find themselves in school and with their peers. Share your awareness that really moisturizes even the oldest and the worst of the eyes. After the heart stop, he is a dominant youth force. They are expected to be everywhere this year.
L is for LGBTQ +.
As an LGBTQ + individual, this is a London day dedicated to shaping our image. Let us be proud, it is in the title.
