Gay pride or LGBT pride refers to a world wide movement and philosophy asserting that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity. Gay pride advocates work for equal "rights and benefits" for LGBT people.[1][2][3] The movement has three main premises: that people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity, that sexual diversity is a gift, and that sexual orientation and gender identity are inherent and cannot be intentionally altered.[4] Marches celebrating Pride (pride parades) are celebrated worldwide. Symbols of LGBT pride include the rainbow flag, the Greek lambda symbol, and the pink as well as black triangles reclaimed from their past use.[5] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 800 × 531 pixelsFull resolution‎ (1,791 × 1,188 pixels, file size: 837 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) File historyClick on a date/time to view the file as it appeared at that time. ...

History

Famous figures in contemporary history

In more recent contemporary history there have been notable figures that have fought for or involved themselves in gay rights, or their right to live their lives as they saw fit. Oscar Wilde is most memorable for his writings but as well for his relationship that ended with his imprisonment.[citation needed] It was during this time that English male youths were known to have same-sex relationships, and a blind eye was taken to them. It was expected that the young men would outgrow these relationships and go on to marry.[citation needed] Oscar Wilde did not. Oscar Fingal OFlahertie Wills Wilde (October 16, 1854 – November 30, 1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, poet, and author of short stories. ...


Quentin Crisp had also battled society for his right to live and love without the fear of arrest. Author of The Naked Civil Servant he has become an icon within the gay community and symbol of gay pride for many men and women.[citation needed] Quentin Crisp (December 25, 1908) – November 21, 1999), was an English writer, artists model, actor and raconteur known for his memorable and insightful witticisms. ...

19th century movement in Germany

At the turn of the century in Germany there was an early gay rights movement akin to today's Gay Pride movement. Lead by Magnus Hirschfeld, this movement sought to educate the public and to bring about the repeal of Paragraph 175, a provision of the German Criminal Code begun on the 15th May, 1871, which made homosexual acts between males a crime.

The 1980s

Front line of PASTT at Gay Pride at Paris in France, June 2005

In the 1980s there was a major cultural shift in the Stonewall Riot commemorations. The previous loosely organized, bottom-up marches and parades were taken over by more organised and less radical elements of the gay community. The marches began dropping "Liberation" and "Freedom" from their names under pressure from more conservative members of the community, replacing them with the philosophy of "Gay Pride"[citation needed] (in the more liberal city of San Francisco, the name of the gay parade and celebration was not changed from Gay Freedom Day Parade to Gay Pride Day Parade until 1994). The Greek lambda symbol and the pink triangle which had been revolutionary symbols of the Gay Liberation Movement were tidied up and incorporated into the Gay Pride, or Pride, movement, providing some symbolic continuity with its more radical beginnings.
