We’re Here, We’re Sexuality Minority…

Posted by anandrr on June 30, 2008

You live for many years in a city that has a large gay pride parade every June and the local media takes great pride in it. Then you come home and the local media are such prudes that they coyly refer to the “Sexuality Minority Parade.”

    Not sure “sexual minority” is a prudish term. After all the meaning of “gay” has only recently begun to include lesbians, and doesn’t yet include bi-sexuals and transsexuals, at least not according to the dictionary. So if it was an LGBT parade, then “sexual minorities” seems fine. What would you have called it?

    I’d call it the Gay Pride Parade, just like every where else around the world. Calling the sexuality minority is a byproduct of the same mentality that causes The Hindu to refer to Muslims and Christians as “people of a particular community,” and so forth.
