so we have a name problem



i mean

gay – for gay pride, gay marriage, gay rights… but we’re not all gay

lgbt is missing quite a few letters

lgbt+  …. seems pretty dismissive of the other letters

lgbtquia doesn’t quite roll off the tongue

queer can hurt people

mogai is used by pedos

and we are NOT using Not-Straights

so, I suggest

The Pride. 

(since the word is already ours.)


whats the u

… i just noticed i typed an u, as a habit after the q. it’s an error and not supposed to mean anything or mock the lgbtqia+ designation. 

Someone recommended to me using “quiltbag” which does roll off the tongue well. Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Lesbian, Trans, Bi, Ace/Aro, Gay. I like Pride but it could easily be confused. Just my thoughts.

Just another crazy person, masquerading as a writer.
