18 Times Pride Month Went And Made You Emotional

Until next year, queers.

It's almost the end of Pride Month, but don't get too upset!

We've rounded up some of the moments that made this year one of the biggest, queerest, and proudest yet.

1. Like when this grandma wouldn't let her granddaughter hit the parade without her flag looking flawless:

The tweet quickly went viral, for obvious reasons, and this sweet grandma got the praise she deserves.

2. When this ultra-conservative father was adamant he would NOT let his daughter attend her very first Pride...without some new shoes and jewelry for the big day:

So this weekend my sister is going to her very first pride parade and my dad, who is very conservative, surprised her by buying some things for her to wear (a necklace, bracelet, and shoes). Needless to say, it was a very sweet moment :) #LoveWins https://t.co/JEA8bb356i

*Wipes away flood of tears*

3. And when this couple kept their pride going strong each and every year (goals):

Pride β€˜16, β€˜17, & β€˜18 and the only thing that has changed is her wigs πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ˜˜

4. Also, when this woman-made Isle of Lesbos became a reality in Warsaw:

I'm crying @ these photos of a bunch of lesbians who set up a makeshift lesbos island on a roundabout during the pride parade in warsaw today... iconic https://t.co/BXiNuKlEI9

5. When someone felt the need to get their set of paws this level of Pride-ready:

6. When this indestructible rainbow installation was created to stand the test of time:

a 2012 art installation of a rainbow in support of the lgbt community in warsaw was repeatedly burnt down vandalized and eventually stripped down only to make a comeback for 2018 pride parade as a literal rainbow so it's indestructible and here to stay gay science is so powerful https://t.co/SA7gFswjsq

7. When someone's Grandma said this:

my fucking heart! 😍 currently on a train to #NYCPride & there is this older women w/ what looks like her grandchild & obvii its like all LGBTQ+ on the train & shes telling her grandchild β€œtheres a special parade today celebrating love” w/ a huge smile.

8. Oh, and when Stephanie Beatriz from Brooklyn Nine-Nine inspired this perfect sign:

Hey @iamstephbeatz & @Brooklyn99FOX: you inspired my sign for #Pride yesterday!

9. When these moves stole the whole goddamn show:

10. When this Portland mom set up the most beautiful pride surprise for her daughter...

so my mom surprised with me my girlfriend @ pride πŸ˜©πŸ’› #pdxpride

...and a bystander snagged the perfect snap of the whole thing:

11. Speaking of supportive parents, this dad's small comment made me say "Awww" to myself very loudly:

why is my dad the sweetest most supportive person ever im crying :’)

And the follow-up is just as sweet:

I showed my dad how popular this tweet was getting and he wasn’t that excited. i asked him why and he’s like β€œi don’t care about all that stuff i just care about YOU”. why am i so blessed. https://t.co/efiqCeWApT

12. And when this magical book display came into existence (and should stick around for always).

13. When this rad dad showed up for his son...

@corey_tits

...and absolutely won the Best Dad award:

14. And when this dad rocked the heck outta this pride shirt:

This is my dad. He is 86. He accepted me for who I really am whole heartedly. And now he is wearing my anti homophobic people and anti racist people to show his support to me and other... God I am blessed for having a great father πŸ’–πŸ’– #Pride #LGBTQ https://t.co/WCiUbexfNN

15. There were a lot of supportive parents, are people taking notes!?

parents supporting their lgbtq+ kids during pride month is the best thing I’ve ever seen

16. Also, let's not forget when Kehlani made a little girl cry...

...which, in turn, made everyone cry:

@Kehlani when you know you picked the right idol

17. And when Janelle MonΓ‘e πŸ‘ turned πŸ‘ it πŸ‘out at the BET Awards in this ensemble:

18. And, of course, there were engagements that broke our hearts β€” like these two brave members of the FDNY:

Yes, love is good.

Until next year, queers.
