Why isn't there Straight Pride month?


It’s that time of the year again; rainbow-covered items have begun popping up around town, be they banners on street-posts or items in stores that have a rainbow-themed pattern with ‘PRIDE’ plastered somewhere on it. It feels like it’s been an annual thing for some years now, or as far as I can recall since I went to that giant ‘pride parade’ downtown what might’ve been a good ten years ago by now.

Also the time when I often hear fellow workmates or friends scoff at the idea of it being ‘gay pride’ month. Turning down my suggestions that we dip downtown and check out the parade because, ‘why is there no straight pride parade?’ Or if they’re typically a good bit older, saying they’re not interested in checking out ‘gay propaganda’.

Now, I never really bothered to look into the answers to why there is so much media about LGBTQ+ pride. How come we never read or hear about the same things having gone on in our parents or grandparents time, save for Woodstock? I mean, there’s typically a catalyst of some sort for every movement that really kicks it into motion so colour me surprised when I read up on the history behind gay pride month.

Why isnt there Straight Pride month?

Gay Americans living in the 1950s and 1960s faced an anti-gay legal system. Homosexual groups in the U.S. at that time sought to show that gay people could be assimilated into society, favouring non-confrontational education for homosexuals and heterosexuals alike.

There were very few establishments who welcomed gay people. The ones that did were usually bars, namely The Stonewall Inn. The Stonewall Inn was run by the Mafia, and was known to be popular among the poorest and most marginalized people in the gay community: butch lesbians, effeminate young men, drag queens, male prostitutes, and transgender people.. In the fall of 1959, the New York police force began closing down the city's gay bars, which had numbered almost two dozen in Manhattan at the beginning of the year.

The election of John Lindsay as mayor in 1965 signaled a major shift in NYC politics, and a new attitude toward sexual behaviors began changing the social atmosphere of New York.

On April 21, 1966, it was declared that it was illegal for homosexuals to congregate and be served alcoholic beverages in bars.

An example of when these laws had been upheld is when Gloria's, a bar that had been closed for such violations, fought the case in court and lost. Prior to this change in the law, the business of running a gay/lesbian bar would often involve paying bribes to the police and Mafia.

Regardless, most gay bars were quickly closed and new ones lasted only a short time. Despite police raids on gay bars being almost routine throughout the 1960s, officers quickly lost control of the situation at the Stonewall Inn on June 28, 1969.

And so it began…

In the early hours of the morning, five uniformed police officers joined forces with four undercover police, who were already stationed inside the bar.

Because the patrol wagons responsible for transporting the arrested patrons and the alcohol from the bar took longer than expected, the raid did not go as planned. This little bit of extra time was all that was needed for a crowd of released patrons and by-standers to grow outside of the Inn. The crowd swelled as the night went on. So much so that the police officers eventually became so afraid of the crowd that they refused to leave the bar for up to 45 minutes!

The straw that broke the camel’s back in what had been building up for years was when a woman in handcuffs was escorted from the door of the bar to the waiting police wagon several times. She managed to get out of the wagon and proceeded to repeatedly fight with four of the police, swearing and shouting. Bystanders recalled that the woman sparked the crowd to fight when she looked at bystanders and shouted,

"Why don't you guys do something?!"

After an officer picked her up and heaved her into the back of the wagon, the crowd became explosively violent.

As riots typically go, the more the police force tried to restrain some of the crowd, knowing a few people down, the more riled up bystanders became. The riots would go on to escalate to the point where the Tactical Police Force (TPF) of the New York City Police Department were called in to help free the police officers trapped inside the Stonewall.

Tensions between New York City police and gay residents of Greenwich Village erupted into more protests the next evening, and again several nights later. Within weeks, Village residents quickly organized into activist groups to concentrate efforts on establishing places for gay men and lesbians to be open about their sexual orientation without fear of being arrested.

After the Stonewall riots had quieted down, gay men and lesbians in New York City faced gender, race, class, and generational obstacles to finally being able to become a more cohesive community. Within six months, two gay activist organizations were formed in New York. A year after the uprising, to mark the anniversary on June 28, 1970, the first gay pride marches took place in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The anniversary of the riots was also commemorated in Chicago and similar marches were organized in other cities. Within a few years, gay rights organizations were founded across the U.S. and the world.

LGBT Pride Month occurs in the United States to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognize the impact LGBT people have had in the world. Beginning in 2012, Google even displayed some LGBT-related search results with different rainbow-colored patterns each year during June. In 2017, Google also included rainbow coloured streets on Google Maps to display Gay Pride marches occurring across the world.

Why isnt there Straight Pride month?

So, back to the question- why is there no month or festivities celebrating being straight?

Because Congress has yet to pass a law requiring people to hide the fact they are straight. The streets are not filled with children who have been kicked out of their homes for being straight. It’s not the norm to see stories in the news in which someone has been beaten, tied to a fence and left to die or shot in the face at point blank range because they were straight.

Gay pride month may seem like a band-aid solution to raising more awareness for the LGBTQ+ community to many, but remember; it was the norm to be arrested for nothing more than belonging to such communities less than a century ago!

As a result, it seems pretty fitting that every liberty be celebrated.

Why isnt there Straight Pride month?

EDIT- the title was intended to be nothing more than click-bait. I was aware that there's no need to raise awareness for an orientation/gender-identity that is held by the majority. However, my curiosity definitely got the best of me when I heard many peers/coworkers asking the question in all seriousness. Hence, I took it upon myself to look into the history behind 'gay pride month' and learn more about what actual events were involved in how it came to be.

    Men who have sex with other men, whether they are gay or bisexual, are at a greater risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases. Nearly half of all new cases of HIV, for instance, are in gay and bisexual men. African American men carry the greatest burden. HIV is not the only risk and these men are also at risk for HPV, the human papilloma virus, which can cause cancer, and hepatitis. Syphilis, another sexually transmitted infection has also been on the rise in recent years, especially in large cities.

    • Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) have been rising among gay and bisexual men, with increases in syphilis being seen across the country. In 2014, gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men accounted for 83% of primary and secondary syphilis cases where sex of sex partner was known in the United States. Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men often get other STDs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea infections. HPV (Human papillomavirus), the most common STD in the United States, is also a concern for gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men. Some types of HPV can cause genital and anal warts and some can lead to the development of anal and oral cancers. Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men are 17 times more likely to get anal cancer than heterosexual men. Men who are HIV-positive are even more likely than those who do not have HIV to get anal cancer.

      You're correct and a recent experienced highlighted how big the concern is. I went for a check-up at the end of last year, to check for any sexually transmitted diseases. What I found interesting was how many times the doctor wanted to confirm if I had sex with a man before the tests, he sought confirmation four different times. This is a medically trained expert, one of his main concerns was if I had been in a homosexual relationship. We encourage such behaviour that has serve health problems going forward.

    Let me ask you something. When were straight people denied marriage rights, the right to adopt children, harassed because they were straight, and denied many basic human rights. Pride month celebrates equality of gay people. Straight people were never oppressed, therefore you don't need a month.

Furthermore scientific research, clinicians and nurse disagree with you. So I ask you again, beyond your own prejudice, what makes you an expert in mental health.

    I just love how Russia is taking actions in preventing mental illness spreading to their kids. The Russian government's stated purpose for the law is to protect children from being exposed to homosexuality—content presenting homosexuality as being a norm in society—under the argument that it contradicts traditional family values. The statute amended the country's child protection law and the Code of the Russian Federation on Administrative Offenses, to criminalize the distribution of "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relationships" among minors. This definition includes materials that "raises interest in" such relationships, cause minors to "form non-traditional sexual predispositions", or "[present] distorted ideas about the equal social value of traditional and non-traditional sexual relationships." Businesses and organizations can also be forced to temporarily cease operations if convicted under the law, and foreigners may be arrested and detained for up to 15 days then deported, or fined up to 5,000 rubles and deported.

    • First, insanity is doing a repeating an action but expecting a, different result. Another definition of insanity includes the inability to conduct oneself due to psychosis or subject to uncontrollable impuslive behavior. How does attraction to the same sex differ from attraction to the opposite that aligns with the definition I presented. At best you could pseudo argue that it's not natural. I used pseudo argue because there are several cases of homosexuality in nature.

    Im not no SJW but it super annoying when people say stuff like that. People who are straight have never been discriminated against purely base on their sexuality. I have never heard of a straight person being disowned by their family, killed, beaten, imprisoned or fired because of their sexuality.

    The only thing that slightly annoys me about pride is that when they have parades it's mostly half naked people twerking with a dildo on the head or something like that, that paint all gay people with the same brush and stops them from being taken seriously. Not all gay people acts outrageously flamboyant most are normal people like everyone else and i feel like nothing ever comes from these pride months, nothing is ever achieved instead its seen as a excuse to party, when there is still lots of work that needs to be done with Society and the gay community for example they could be raising awareness for gay abuse and murder victims that the police have been ignoring for years and religious and cultural persecution against gay people.

      Why should gay people have pride in being gay? Being gay isn't an achievement.

    • @Twenty2 honestly im a 16 year old girl and didn't invent pride. I don't really see it as a big deal myself, gay people are just people these days like everyone else in most civilised countries but i can also understand why they'd want to stand together and tell the world they are not ashamed of who they are to help others who are struggling to come out.

      I have a gay friend and his family are very old fashioned i remember him being absolutely terrified of being to be the person he wanted to be, out and proud. He didn't want people seeing or treating him differently just because of his sexuality to the point hed tried to commit suicide multiple times. As one of his friends he came out to it was heart breaking to see. Eventually he got the help he needed and met people like him, who let him feel normal and himself without judgement.

      I think pride is more about supporting each other to be there self with out fear of being judge in a safe place.

      You might not want to amit this but it's a lot easier being straight, you have no one making jokes behind your back about your sexuality, you don't have to care of what you're friends and family might think and your sexuality is just seen as normal by most people. No one would blink a eye if you turned around and said you like women.

      In some community it is still very scary coming out as gay and terrible things are still happening to gay people to date. you just don't hear about it on the news.

      Its exactly brave coming out as gay and pride encourages others to be brave and come out i guess is the conclusion of all of it.

    • I highly recommen you watch some of these videos and possibly educate yourself on how being gay is still extremely dangerous for many people around the world to be open about.

      I even remember watching one documentary about a gang in Russia cat fishing young gay men on dating apps and kidnapping them and torturing them and filming it to put online. Mainly videos including them stripping these men naked beating them and throwing boiling hot water on them.

    Good question. I've asked this question myself. And then I realised I never got to be bullied for being straight. I never got to be mistreated for being straight. My "straightness" was never considered non-normal. I never had to fight for my own rights cause they were never taken for being straight. Having kids is a gift given to me, and I never have to struggle for it (well except if diseases or other stuff happen). I don't have to hide the fact that I have a boyfriend. I don't have to act like I like girls. You see, in overall : I have nothing to fight for and thus nothing to be proud of.
    The pride month is celebrating what you achieved after fighting for a long time. Like coming out after you fought for a long time to keep it a secret. Like being open in public. Like getting married, and adopting kids, and having your own family. For a straight person like me, this is not as difficult as for a gay person. And if they manage to live happily with their partner then they made it. And they should feel proud of that.

Its not the norm and hasn't been, thats why we fight.

    Because the timing so perfectly matched the struggles of late last century. The anniversary of Stonewall was coming up and LGBTQ+ groups on social media were broadcasting reminders of our struggles in the past and how people of color, having their own similar issues at the time, were quick to support the community in its rally against an oppressive authority.

    And the name Marsha P. Johnson was once again put on people's tongues. She was a self proclaimed drag queen, today she would probably use the term trans woman. And she was black.

    • @neilsmart Yes but doing this won't fix that a parade etc is to advertise to the world it's existence not stop homophobic behaviour you would use a procession to have laws reformed if anything.

      Actually no, the whole point is to reform attitudes by showing uneducated bigots that gay people exist - the more gay people they see the more they realise, actually there is nothing to fear, they are decent normal people just like everyone else. They aren't parading to annoy you, they are doing it to help each other be more accepted - why do you have such a huge problem with gay people - can't you just let people live the way the want without passing judgement? Nobody is telling you that you're very existence is wrong and that you can't be yourself so why do it others?

    If you heteros feel like celebrating, do it. Or don’t. Literally your choice.

    because you have had thousands of years and even today you get 11 months to be as openly straight as you want. The LGBT community STILL doesn't have the same rights everyone else does, so there really isn't a need for one.
