Letting go of the fallacies Gloriously enameling the identity Boisterously flamboyant Trying to carve a niche Quixotic world coercing to remain silent Illicit it is perceived Albeit with Pride, it'll be fought
It is hard! To survive in a world that tells you that you are different. Being mocked for every attribute of yours. The way you talk, walk, stand, sit, watch, behave, laugh, cry and even breathe, I suppose. And so the journey of finding oneself begins.
At first one is not capable, or to put it aptly according to the prevailing perceptions, one doesn't have the knowledge about what the concept of sexuality is. And if one finds herself/ himself in such a position then it is perplexing to their mind.
The society is supposed to function in a certain manner, or so it is ordered to. Mediaeval norms are still prevalent and the ones preaching, protect it as a sacred artifact. And so if someone is found to be a little off-putting then that individual is declared as the target of humiliation and harsh scrutiny.
People all over the world have fought and are still fighting for equal rights to the LGBTQIA+ community. We live in the year 2021 but still it is a crime to Love, a person, irrespective of anything, wholly and solely. To treat the individuals who feel this way differently is a task many have adorned.
But gone are those days when this society was under toxic chauvinistic patriarchy. We believe in coexistence, inclusivity and diversity now. And if anyone dares to impede it, then they'll have to face the wrath of these 'different' individuals and all those others who support them. But not in the form of war, more like an intervention in the form of knowledge. With a clear, pure and genuine intention, that is, to be considered an equal and to be accepted with love.
The symbolism of The Rainbow signifies: Hope, after a storm; Beauty, in every angle possible; Light, amidst ferocious darkness; Courage, betwixt pangs of doubt; Voice, that will never cease; Pinnacle, showing that only sky is the limit; and Love, that'll be showered on everyone.
A day will come when a human will be seen as a human, without any classifications. And that day will be the true symbol of Pride!
