Several amazing online LGBTQ+ communities are teaming up with Social Ketchup and Local Samosa for the Pride LIVE fest and here's what you need to know about them!

Prie months holds an unmatched significance for everything it honours and represents. It began as a way to commemorate the Stonewall Riots where people fought back against suppression, has over the years evolves as a way to bring together everyone from the LGBTQ+ communities and the allies. A way to fight for the right to be and live life as one's true self and not conform to the age-old rules. The community has seen growth as more and more people are finding ways to embrace their amazing authentic selves and aren't afraid to hide it from the world. To honour this spirit of freedom and every single person who has contributed towards fighting for the rights of the LGBTQ+ community Social Ketchup and Local Samosa are hosting their first-ever Pride LIVE fest. And we are thrilled to have LGBTQ+ communities who are actively working towards helping people, team-up with us the event!

Lately, I've been wondering the ways our breath supports us and how it becomes a silent messenger in times of distress, it tells us a story that we often forget to listen to. This pride month, as we are looking at the various intersectionalities and discourses, let's take a moment to notice our breath. My breath is my pride and my pride is my ?️‍?community, it's the collective I live in. And I want my breath to breathe fully and freely not just survive, but thrive openly! What story is your breath narrating? And what do you hope for, for your breath? #pauseforperspective #pause #perspective #pfp #mentalhealth #peace #health #therapy #psychotherapy #psychotherapist #therapist #mentalspace #mindful #mindfulness #mbsm #breathe #wellbeing #health #flourishing #therapy #drag #LGBTQ #pride? #prideparade #pridemonth #pride2020
