The Pride Movement in America

Pride month each June has come to be symbolized as a time for celebration, an opportunity to remember the enduring contributions of members of the LGBT+ community, and the impact that the movement continues to have on our country today.

9. Supportive Therapy and Counseling

The goal of supportive therapy is to provide assistance to clients with their feelings, emotions, and problems in life, as well as guide them through difficult situations, with their sexuality not playing into their problems or feelings. For example, a gay man might be feeling depressed and anxious about his identity and feelings, or a girl who identifies as lesbian may feel confused about her sexuality. In both of these situations, a supportive therapist or a counselor would help the client through their feelings and identity issues, regardless of the client’s sexuality. They play a vital role in this pride month because they help provide support, information, and acceptance to those who seek it. Supportive therapists and counselors are not only helpful for those identifying as lesbian, bisexual or gay but also for heterosexuals who feel uncomfortable in their skin.

During LGBT pride month, there are many different events to celebrate the culture and lifestyle of the LGBT+ community. There are parades, festivals, and celebratory gatherings in all across the United States. The purpose of these events is to encourage acceptance and equality among all members of the community by providing a voice for them to express what it means to be LGBT+ openly.
