Proud to Be Yourself

As you may or may not know, this weekend is the global pride weekend. In case you don’t know what that means, this is the time when gays and lesbians from all around the world come out, and celebrate their individuality. In fact, tomorrow, countries all around the world will be hosting a Global Pride Parade.

This parade symbolizes one of the most important things we Black Falcons stand for: Freedom, or more specifically, freedom to be who you want to be. It takes a lot of courage for these men and women around the world to stand up, and celebrate no matter what anyone else thinks of them. This is the kind of character we Black Falcons need to have.

To be a Black Falcon, you need to always put yourself out there, and build your social circle from the grounds up. But it’s not enough to just meet people. You must be able to hold on to them as well, or your social circle would eventually disappear. If you can’t even freely be yourself, how can you expect others to like you for who you are?

So even if you’re not gay, go out and cheer for them. These men and women have chosen not to sacrifice who they are, and instead would celebrate it with pride. As Black Falcons, the least we can do is support them in their cause.
