It’s that time again!
Time to get out our rainbow paraphernalia and lend our support to friends and family who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or something in between. It’s PRIDE WEEK!
I hear you asking:
But what if I don’t have time to go to my nearest urban area and walk in the parade?
What if I’m allergic to glitter?
What if I don’t dance and/or hate crowds due to crippling social anxiety?
What if I’m not ready to fully come out of the closet as an LGBT ally? I mean, what if my pastor sees me, man?
Delilah Fawkes has some easy, convenient, and dare I say FUN ways to show your support for pride week:
- Donate some money to The Human Rights Campaign by clicking here! They’re a great organization working for equal rights and ending discrimination for gay, lesbian, bi and transgendered people, including ending bullying in schools.
You can even support them by buying cool stuff, like this super cute LOVE EQUAL bracelet! They have a lot of inexpensive items that make great gifts, and 100% of merchandise proceeds goes to helping the Human Rights Campaign. Win/win!
- Pass around this hilariously incredible music video, “It Gets Better,” by Rebecca Drysdale.
- Give a shout out to your favorite LGBT celebrity!

Tweet, Facebook, Pinterest, etc, a note of appreciation, and show your solidarity!
These are just a few easy ideas to get you started :). Go celebrate however you please!
Hug that person in your life who you know is LGBT, or maybe even just change your profile pic to a rainbow flag this week. Donate, volunteer, or go dance in the streets and show you are a person who cares about human rights, and is on the right side of history.
It’s good to be a loving human being. I think we can all get behind that :). Especially us hopeless romantics.
Happy Pride to all of my fabulous readers!
