    We don't standby on sidelines and wait for laws to affirm our lives; we live and we make room for each other to live--that's pride.

    We endure physical, mental, spiritual, emotional and sexual violence, coercion and social pressure--and still show up as who the fuck we are, demanding what the fuck we need and want--that's pride.

    We build community resources, connections and affirming spaces because we know we deserve them--that is pride.

    We honor our black, brown, indigenous and mixed-race queer, trans and gender non-conforming ancestors and elders because we know how amazing a community our existence comes from, we know we didn't start shit--we are simply committed to continuing it. Our history is our pride.

    We step fly cause we blessed and we know it. We got that Black pride all up and through us. That unshakeable walk pride. That, "who us? we good." pride.

    We are building connections and sharing our hearts and minds around the world. We are proud of our stories and work. They belong everywhere.

    We are proud of you.
    We are proud of us.

    We are a collective who is proud to be uplifting the healthy embodiment of masculinity in queer, trans, intersex, masculine of center, doms, studs, AGs, butches, tombois, machas, third gender, gender non-conforming people around the world.

    Pride is 

    our commitment to a full and principled life that sets each other free.

    Ashe.
