Human Holiday

Hailey Hudman, Human Holiday

Many people believe that months, days, times and holidays are important. And they are. For example, Christmas is the most celebrated holiday in the USA and it impacts us a lot. Months like pride month or black history month celebrate our pride and protests against the people who believe differently.

Many times during these months, people create negative things out of them. June is known as pride month and celebrates the people of the LGBTQ+ community but other people have created something called “pride fall.” This falls in June, the same as Pride month. Pride Fall is where homophobic and transphobic people celebrate their religion and protest agiant LGBTQ. This sends a message that it is ok to harm and discriminate against the LGBTQ+ community.

People think that they need a white history month or a straight/cisgender pride. And I think that people need to realize it has taken many decades for the lgbtq, the people of color and different races to get where they are today. Men, women, and even children are getting brutally beaten by cops, civilians, and criticized at school for things that they can’t change.

I think that it’s a good idea to celebrate everyone for just being here. Congratulate the survivors because we all have had something happen to us, and it’s amazing that you’ve stuck through.

Having a month for everyone is a great solution because it will help the white and straight people feel more included and the gays and colors have their pride! If we can all learn that no matter what you like, who you are, or what you look like doesn’t define you, then we can cut all of the discrimination out of our lives! 

The month would be April, every year people would throw parties, paradise and protests against people that are racist, homophobic, ect. It would be a worldwide thing and I hope it could make the world a better place.
