Edit Profile to Add Pride Flag

For many people, being LGBTQ+ can be difficult. Being open about who you are is a challenging point in many LGBTQ+ people’s lives, and many worry about what people will think, and who will or won’t accept them. Seeing LGBTQ+ supporters can be a meaningful reminder that it’s okay to be yourself.

At the beginning of the month, we asked deviants to create art with one of the six colors of the Pride flag. We’re overwhelmed and heart-warmed to see the outpouring of support of deviants and all of the stories that have been shared. Over 10,000 deviants submitted Pride art.

Today, we’re releasing a Pride flag made with love by the DeviantArt community — and you can now add it to your profile to show your support, or to just celebrate Pride!

There are lots of people in the lgbtq+ community who are christian. Your sexuality doesn't make your beliefs any less valid, if that's a concern you have. And yes, it makes perfect sense. Don't worry 100% okay to question your sexuality! Don't be afraid to question yourself, and no matter what you decide to identify with in the end, I hope it brings you peace. 

Hope this helped! <3

Maybe it helps to think of religion and sexual orientation as two separate things?

I'm not proud and i don't want that. Not hate LGBT, but i think sexual orientation is individual thing and it can't be show off bublicly. It is a bit childish im my opinion.

Why is sexual deviance something society should celebrate? Do we ever celebrate the family, for instance? We have a dying society with a broken family unit, and all we seem obsessed with celebrating is a life style of waving a dildo and having random sex. Pleasures of the sex are hardly a major virtue. Society needs to celebrates things and values that will contribute to its survival. Be of whatever sexual orientation you want, as long as you don't transgress over others. But this obsession with homosexuality is really taking a bizarre turn. I want people to be proud of being married and having kids. I want the family unit being celebrated.

I agree with you. I respect homosexuals, trans, etc as a humans, but i don't accept that LGBT trying to manipulate a normal people. This is a sexual deviation and illness, i'm not celebrating that. Just no.

While I understand that you want things like the survival of society to be celebrated, I'd like to say something, even if it is a bit cynical. With more orphans than ever, now would be a fine time to adopt and raise those kids. A future where having parents of the same gender is as normal as having parents of both genders is something that we should all look forward to. Being homosexual is not an illness. It is a mental standpoint that should be respected. You can argue that it is deviating from what is natural all you like, but being able to access the internet itself is not natural, as is disrespecting another person's point of view.

Why, exactly, do we "need" straight pride? Heterosexuals have never been discriminated against (and no, posts going "lol straight ppl are dumb" don't count, as they are obviously jokes.)

:iconharryplinkett:
harryplinkett Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2018
they are being discriminated against because the society celebrates exclusively deviant forms of sexuality.

How does that compare to the hatred LGBT people get? There have been gay and trans people who have actually been murdered for who they are. Heterosexual people have never been killed for their identity.
I get what you're saying - really, I do; straight people do deserve respect - but as they don't have to deal with the threat of being beaten up or even killed for who they are, I don’t think they need a month dedicated to them.

i think lgbt people have been praised and celebrated beyond anything one can consider reasonable, while normal people and the family have never been given any praise.

"Normal people" What makes LGBT any different from the so-called normal? They just like the same gender, big deal. That doesn't make them different.
And hun, please. We DO celebrate families. Ever heard of Mother's Day, or Father's Day? That’s 2 days dedicated to appreciating our parents. Don’t give me that "families aren't praised" bs

Why are there so many crappy comments here?, i mean it was good first but then it took a downward spiral after one side accused another and vice versa and one complaining this is exploiting/commercializing LGBT people.

I mean, why can't we all be friends?

:iconbaronvondoktor:
Don't you think having a christian pride month is the exact reason why us homosexuals have a pride month? Not mad and I don't want to fight or anything, but, SOME christians do hate homosexuals which is why a lot of us, including me, stay in the closet. I think pride month is a great way to get OUT of the closet. So we don't have to hide anymore. And we don't necessarily have to be in the parade, but we get to take part in the pride month. Like with art!



Pride 

Edit: I am also christian, but I am also homosexual and I am ashamed of when christians say such things about homosexuals.

Heterosexuals don't need a pride month because you've NEVER been beaten up or murdered for being straight. The LGBT community has.

Christians are already in my opinion, a bit tooo proud. The LGBT people are amazing. I am LGBT, I know tons of people who are, and they're sweet, smart, funny, amazing people. You don't have to put it on your page if you don't want to, but don't hate on people for it.

That's like saying black people don't deserve their black history month because it leaves white people out. Christians get so much more out of this world than people who are just trying to live and love each other. Is it really that bad to see this on your page? :/ Would it be more satisfactory to see Jesus all over DA
