Religious conservatives who complain of Pride parades are missing the point. Pride wasn’t born in celebration, but in protest. Today’s parades and festivals are a by-product of the discrimination and hatred wrought upon the LGBTQ community. There is a simple way to end Pride festivals: stop treating LGBTQ people differently.
