The LGBTQ+ community is celebrating World Pride in many countries all over the globe for the whole month of June. Beyond the beautiful and colorful rainbow ensemble made of fresh flower arrangements, balloons, ribbons, and garlands, these worldwide parades and parties is a big deal for members of the community as they simultaneously fight for discouragement and discrimination and at the same time celebrate love, acceptance, and freedom to express themselves.
