Celebrating Pride as a non American

I guess, we wont be changing any profile pictures today

My facebook feed is currently one giant rainbow, a couple of friends asked me if I was going to change my profile picture. I have had the same profile picture since I joined facebook. I don’t care very much to change things like that often. So when this happened, it was never really a decision to consider, what’s more, it was pride week across the states and other countries but not in my own country, and it was the American supreme court that made gay marriage legal across all the states in US. In my own country, it is still illegal to ‘be’ gay or as they so eloquently put it – to have unnatural relations with a person of the same sex.  So, really was there a reason for me to celebrate?

It is a win none the less and maybe in 5 years, my president will say, hey, they made it legal and their country didn’t burn down, maybe this is not so bad. Who knows? what I do know is that I will not be changing my profile picture. Not just yet anyway.
