Many of the Pride celebrations here in the U.S. and abroad occured after the mass shooting in Orlando. Sifting back over the images we have posted this month had a roller-coaster feeling. There were all the joyful Pride celebrations through June 11, and then there were still more joyful celebrations June 12 and after, but there was a new presence at the post-Orlando Prides—one of deep mourning and loss. But there was also something else, an insistence on still celebrating our freedom and our right to be, and a renewed dedication to being visible at all costs. This year we note that more and more straight allies joined us to show support, and also because it is a great way to spend the day with your family.
