The gay pride or simply pride
campaign of the gay rights movement has three main premises: that people should
be proud of what they are, that sexual diversity is a gift, and that sexual
orientation and gender identity are inherent and cannot be intentionally
altered. Marches celebrating Pride (pride parades) are celebrated worldwide.
Symbols of gay pride include the rainbow flag and also of the pink and black
triangles reclaimed from their past use.
