Celebrating LGBTQ Progress Amidst Continued Struggles This Pride Month

Sacramento’s recent Pride parade highlighted the achievements and ongoing challenges of the LGBTQ community, drawing both celebrations and protests. Recognizing and supporting diverse voices is essential for our nation’s progress.

A Vibrant Celebration

The parade, part of a weekend-long Pride Month celebration, saw thousands march from Southside Park to 10th Street near the Capitol. The event was a colorful display of unity and diversity, featuring rainbow flags, political figures, motorcyclists, corgis, Bank of America, and the Sacramento Gay Men’s Chorus.

Diverse Opinions

For many, the parade was a powerful statement against groups pushing anti-LGBTQ policies, such as forced outing of transgender students in schools. Priya Kumar, a spokeswoman for Sacramento Pride Weekend, emphasized the importance of visibility:

“I think it’s really important for this type of demonstration to be here and be seen, and to show how much it’s grown,” Kumar said. “Pride started as a riot. It started as a demonstration against the oppressive forces.”

While some participants welcomed corporate involvement as a sign of support, others, like activist Jessica Lawless, criticized what they view as “corporate Pride pinkwashing.” Lawless argued:

“We must move beyond the politics of visibility. Because visibility to what end?”

Personal Stories

Bruce and Deb Lumbert from Reno brought signs that said, “God blessed us with a gay son. Now let our son bless us with a son-in-law.” and “We are getting a son-in-law.” celebrating their gay son and his upcoming marriage, reflecting their long-standing support for LGBTQ rights. Bruce noted that “Star Trek” star George Takei had autographed their sign during protests against California’s Proposition 8, a 2008 ballot measure banning same-sex marriage. Deb Lumbert expressed cautious optimism:

“The situation for LGBTQ people has gotten better, but I don’t want to see it get worse. That’s what we’re afraid of.”

Their son, Nick Kimutis, who lives in Sacramento and is preparing to marry his fiancé Brian Young, shared his gratitude for living in a state that supports LGBTQ rights, while acknowledging the challenges faced elsewhere.

Political Context

While Pride Month celebrates diversity and progress, it also highlights the complexities of the political landscape. Despite the perception that the LGBTQ community leans towards leftist politics, there is significant diversity within the community, including Republican, Libertarian, and moderate voices.

Editor’s Note: As a Constitutionalist for Liberty, founder of Gays For Trump, and advocate for right-leaning LGBTQ Americans, it is crucial to have a seat at the table in the Republican Party. We must address internalized homophobia within the party and resist efforts from the left that do not prioritize the LGBTQ community’s best interests.

In Pride Month, celebrating contributors from the LGBTQ community can inspire us to embrace diversity and eliminate bigotry. By fostering inclusivity and rejecting hatred, we can create a society as bright and diverse as the rainbow itself.
