Pride Month is all about the acknowledgement, recognition and celebration of the LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning) community. June is the designated Pride Month globally and cities around the world witness parades,
celebrations and other events that demonstrate the pro-LGBTQ+ sentiment, promote inclusivity, and support for human rights. Pride month marks an opportunity for everyone to come together and reflect upon the progress we have made as a society. International Pride Month encourages individuals, organizations and governments to come together and reaffirm their commitment to inclusivity, and work towards a future where diversity is celebrated and everyone can live with pride and dignity, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender biases.
The significance of the occasion is much more than just a celebration of inclusivity, it is also about the recognition and acknowledgement of the courage and resilience of LGBTQ+ pioneers and trailblazers who have fought for equality through time. It is an occasion to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives due to hate crimes and to bring to light the ongoing challenges faced by LGBTQ+ communities all across. The 2023 theme at ibis Kolkata Rajarhat is Rage and Resilience- also reflecting the current global sentiment with the resurgence of anti-LGBT bills and laws. The idea is to work on breaking barriers both physical and metaphorical, to create an inclusive world where everyone can survive without the fear of discrimination or prejudice.
June might be identified as the Pride Month, but the LGBTQ+ celebrations, advocacy, awareness and support continue throughout the year. The spirit of Pride extends beyond a single month along with the efforts to promote equality, acceptance and drive social change.
