50 Of The Funniest Pride Signs That Are Impossible To Look At Without Chuckling
June is coming to an end, which means Pride month is too… but there’s still time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and its individuals, defend equal rights, reject discrimination, and support the right for every individual to live the life they are and love the way they wish. It’s celebrated annually in June in honor of the Stonewall riots, which took place in New York City in June 1969.
You can tell your LGBTQ+ friend and family member how much you love them, maybe some activism, join the community, attend a workshop or symposia or simply put a rainbow sticker on your laptop, and most importantly, have fun!
What’s not addressed enough about the LGBTQ+ community is how hysterically funny its people are. Just take a closer look at the signs and posters of Pride parade participants. Below we selected some of the funniest and the wittiest ones for you to chuckle at and spread that feel-good vibe to you!

Since the pandemic has finally taken a step back with hopes it won’t return, Pride events return to many cities around the world for June. Celebrations and parades filled the streets in some countries, but the moods were not bright everywhere, to say the least.
New York's first Pride March, then called the Christopher Street Liberation Day March, was held in 1970 to mark the first anniversary of the Stonewall rebellion, a spontaneous street uprising triggered by a police raid on a gay bar in Manhattan. This Sunday, march goers lined the route through Manhattan not just celebrating, but also protesting the unprecedented turn in US human rights history.

On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to overturn Roe v. Wade, a 1973 landmark ruling that had secured constitutional protections for abortion in the country for nearly 50 years.
LGBT leaders fear the Supreme Court's decision endangers personal freedom beyond abortion rights. In a concurring opinion, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote that the court might reconsider other precedents, mentioning specifically rulings protecting the rights to contraception, same-sex intimacy and gay marriage.
Meanwhile, Lori Lightfoot, Chicago’s first openly gay mayor and the first Black woman to hold the office, called the ruling a "momentary setback" and said Sunday's events were "an opportunity for us to not only celebrate Pride but be resolved for the fight." She stated: "we will not live in a world, not in my city, where our rights are taken from us or rolled back."
"This march is going to have more of a serious tone than celebratory, and I don't think that's a bad thing at all," said Krystal Marx, executive director of Seattle Pride, which drew thousands of people to its parade on Sunday.
