Key Takeaways
  • This year’s Pride Parade will send a big, bright, colourful message that everyone deserves to live in a world where all LGBTQ+ people are free to live and love in peace.
  • There are two approaches to peace. One sees people as threatening and finds security in hierarchical systems, the other celebrates differences and identifies social structures as harmful.
  • Changing historic institutions and cultural belief systems are big, long-term projects that require social organising on a massive scale.
  • If we all start assuming that (most) humans are good, then we can be brave in the face of difference, gentle in the face of ignorance, and loving in the pursuit of connection.
