Pride parades offer affirmation

Regarding “Repent for gay lifestyle” (Letters, July 16): In the letter, the question of why we celebrate gay pride was asked and I’d like to answer. Some of those “negative aspects” of the gay lifestyle the writer mentioned, such as higher rates of suicide and depression, are because these people are ridiculed, beaten and bullied because of something they have no control over. We celebrate to show that no matter how many times society knocks you down there is a reason to get back up. You aren’t alone. It can get better.
