In a dog’s mind, every day is a celebration of life, and rightfully so. Celebrating pride comes naturally to dogs. However, when June rolls around, the celebrations go up a few rainbow-inspired notches.
Dogs are nonjudgmental and never judge humans by color, gender, identity, or preferences. If the world could be as open-minded as dogs, imagine how much kinder society would be.
The very first Pride parade took place on June 28, 1970, one year after the famous Stonewall Uprising, but Pride is more than parades. In conjunction with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), Pride ensures everyone who identifies as LGBTQ+ is treated as equal and full citizens.
Without exception or exclusion, dogs love all of us unconditionally. We discovered 30 dogs celebrating Pride month, reminding us that love has no boundaries.
