Happy Pride Month!
Pride Month has always been something I celebrated with my children, and most years we have taken them to the parade and various family-friendly Pride events.
In one of my previous articles I mentioned how one of the LGBT+ groups that I’m part of set up a pen pal system at the start of lockdown, and through it during the month of June we’ve all been sending each other Pride cards.
I thought this would be a lovely thing to get the kids in on as they also have family that are LGBT+ so over the last few days we’ve been making Pride cards together as a family.
We bought coloured paper and made different coloured cards to represent the different colours of the Pride flag.
Each colour on the Pride flag represents something different, for example the green stripe on the flag represents nature and the purple stripe represents spirit.
During my hunt for card making supplies I happened to come across rainbow coloured post-its that the kids thought would make great mini flags to put inside each card.
We sent them off in the post this morning so hopefully they’ll be with our friends and family in the next couple of days.
This is just one way that you can get the kids involved in Pride but if you have teenagers they should still be able to take part in virtual events through the Dublin Pride website and BelongTo.
