Happy Pride Month! It’s the best time to live out loud from your head to your shoes.
Pride Month was designated as June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York’s Greenwich Village. A year later, marches to commemorate Stonewall took place in Chicago and Los Angeles. The actions continued to spread – by 1971, there were marches in Boston, Dallas, Milwaukee, London, Paris, and more. These marches led to the Gay Pride Parade and Gay Pride events globally.
Small towns and major cities across the world celebrate Pride all summer. Events range from block parties and drag brunches to lectures and film screenings. With so many events and parties, you may need a new wardrobe for June. Regardless of the activity or action you’re attending, Pride is a chance to express yourself and your identity.
As you prepare for Pride Month 2022, select your accessories accordingly. Comfortable shoes are a must as you may be walking more than usual. The best thing about Pride outfits is that they can be as loud, colorful and expressive as you are. Pride is the time for you to unapologetically express your identity.
Rainbow Platform Boots for Pride Month
The rainbow flag was invented in 1978 by gay rights activist Gilbert Baker. Now, there are many different versions of the Pride rainbow. The colors of these flags reflect the diversity and inclusivity of the LGBTQ+ community. Rainbows are a staple at Pride – this symbol is emblazoned on signs, in window displays and, of course, on shoes. Rainbow platform shoes are the perfect footwear for Pride.
