In the queer community celebrating Pride month with one's dating or committed or married partner is truly a big thing because amidst this modern hookup culture, being partnered romantically over an affectionate bond is something, not many, can be able to attain. So when you have someone beside you as a romantic partner, you must cherish it in every possible way not only in Pride month but throughout your relationship every unique way.
But Pride month stands out special in terms of celebrations in the queer community and hence your partner also needs to be treated specially even though it gets a bit cheesy. Grandeur gifting is something people always opt for when it comes to celebrating special moments and in the process, they overlook little things that bring absolute joy to a couple. Of course, no one stops you from gifting your partner a memorable vacation or expensive branded merchandise or a fancy dinner at a luxurious restaurant but there are a few more things a person must do, that are little but have a huge impact on lifting one's partner's celebratory moods. If you are a queer couple, you must focus on a few little gestures that add extra charm to your Pride month celebrations.
Even though it sounds cliche, say that you love your partner by using those three magical words after waking up and before sleeping regardless of the span of your relationship. To make Pride month special, bring the Valentine's season back by saying it with a rose.
Plan a dinner date at home and cook together from scratch till the end. Spend quality time together by doing chores together including doing dishes after dinner. It's romantic, especially taking time to prepare everything for each other to make the dinner date, a big hit.
Ask your partner about those little things that give him/her/them the pleasure of being loved. No matter how little it is, do it as it gives you inexplicable joy after it. Because in this world of hush and rush, many of our little pleasures are getting neglected and embracing them surely elevates a person's celebratory mood.
Watch a queer-oriented movie together however way you want, be it at home or anywhere outside but spend some lovely time like those typical teenagers who embrace every second of a movie holding hands, kissing and sharing food.
Endure a day off, don't go anywhere and don't plan any outings. Indeed spend the whole day with your partner doing all the little things you feel like doing. Even if it takes you wearing baggy clothes, eating pizzas, drinking and dancing, and lying the whole day like couch potatoes wrapped up in each other's cuddles, absolutely do it. They may sound little but they surely bring a satisfied smile to your face.
Talk it out. Regardless of your and your partner's closeted status, you must be feeling some discomfort, void, or dilemma regarding your queer personality. Don't you think Pride month is the ideal time to confront those little things that sting you, both inside and outside of your relationship? Discussing with your partner regarding your issues makes you feel ease at and appreciate your queer relationship instead of suppressing it and moving ahead.
If you feel your partner faces issues and know that person isn't prepared to share; then take some little initiation, throw that little gesture of assurance of sorting and clearing the issue. Celebrations can be elevated only when the complications get resolved.
Buy any cutest little thing you find and gift it to your partner. It would be heartiest if you gift something Pride month-related or something that defines both of you and your relationship. Rainbows and Unicorns surely elevate pride month celebrations for sure.
Take your partner out on a ride. Enjoy nature and sit somewhere to appreciate it fully. Top it up by planning a cosy picnic as a typical couple's getaway.
Contribute money or clothes or food to the needy under the name of your lovely bond this Pride month, especially to those queer people who are not as privileged as you. It gives you some soul satisfaction and without any doubt can make your partner feels happy.
Showing love always need not has everything to do with expensive gifting. Be as childish as you can. Prepare a DIY greeting card or a craft or an art completely handmade by you by putting all your efforts to create something tender out of your thoughts. This little gesture is way more valuable than a diamond because it comes within you, from you, through you and by you. Because more than your creativity, you end up investing time in something you desire to make your partner feel special.
Pride month is that precise time when queer people feel proud about their existence, presence and appearance by celebrating their personalities to the fullest. It is indeed queer people's Valentine's month. So if you are a couple who proudly belongs to the LGBTQIA+ community, then you must celebrate it in every possible way, including the way that involves portraying little gestures to your partner. Don't forget that little things always matter the most, indeed more than the grand gestures.
