It’s a valid concern, but that’s also kinda the point of the Pride symbol — saying that you’re brave enough to be open about your sexuality, regardless of the consequences.

Of course, some regions require significantly more bravery than others, but those are also the places where that bravery is needed the most.
Wearing the pride isn’t just about someone’s own sexuality but also about respecting the sexuality of others...

Like the product red accessories... don’t mean you have to be hiv pos but supporting openly research, cure and people dealing with it.

The pride watch band looks good without the pride tag, but now I can see some groups, especially in some regions, targeting people with those bands based on their assumptions. Hopefully I’m wrong.

Yep, you’re totally correct, clumsy wording on my part there. I should have said something like “brave enough to openly support the LGBT+ family”. I’ve definitely got a *lot* of love and respect for all the straight allies out there. :cool:
