June is Pride Month when the LGBTQ+ community comes together to celebrate its progress and remember those who fought for our rights. This year, we want to ensure everyone has a productive and fun weekend with their partner! Here are some tips on making the most of your time together.
1. Find a local Pride event to attend together.
This can be a great way to show your support for the community and have some fun simultaneously! There are usually a lot of activities going on, so you’re sure to find something that interests both of you. You can generally find a list of events in your local Pride guide or on the internet.
Some couples dress up (or down) for Pride. This is totally up to you! If you want to, have some fun with it and pick matching or coordinating outfits. A Pride event is a perfect place to experiment with your style and show the world your true selves.
2. Have a picnic in the park.
Enjoying quality time outdoors is always a good idea, and it’s extra special when you can do it with your partner. Pack a lunch and head to your local park for a relaxing afternoon together. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even make it a hike!
Of course, a picnic is only as good as the food you bring, so make sure to consider it. You could prepare some of your favorite dishes or get creative with a Pride-themed menu. Or you can go the classic, romantic route and get a nice bottle of wine to share.
3. Go to the spa.
What better way to relax and unwind than by getting a massage? Most spas offer couples massages so that you can enjoy a relaxing massage experience together. This is a great way to show your partner how much you care and spend quality time relaxing.
If you’re not into massages, you can enjoy plenty of other spa treatments. You could get a facial, go for a swim, get mani-pedis, or just spend some time in the sauna. You’re sure to find something you both enjoy!
4. Volunteer for a local LGBTQ+ organization.
Giving back is a great way to show your support for the community, and many organizations could use your help. You can usually find a list of organizations on the internet or in your local Pride guide.
This is a great way to spend time together while also doing something good for the community. You can talk about your experiences and what you’ve learned while volunteering, and it’s a great way to bond with your partner. Try to find an organization that supports a cause important to both of you.
5. Spend some time getting to know each other’s families.
Pride Month is a great time to meet your partner’s family if you haven’t already. While many people support the LGBTQ+ community, some families can be less accepting. By spending time with your partner’s family, you can show them that you’re a supportive and loving partner.
If you’re not out to your family, this may not be the best time to come out to them. But you can still show your support by attending Pride events with your partner or volunteering for a local LGBTQ+ organization.
6. Spend an evening at home.
Just because you’re at home with your partner doesn’t mean it has to be boring! You can do plenty of things to make it a memorable evening.
You could cook dinner together, play some games, or watch a movie. You could also take some time to talk about your relationship and what you love about each other. Every second spent with your partner is unique, so make the most of it!
7. Do some shopping.
Shopping can be a fun and bonding experience, especially if you’re shopping for Pride-themed merchandise. You can find LGBTQ+-themed clothing, jewelry, and other items online or at your local Pride festival.
This is a great way to show your partner you support them and the community. Plus, it’s a fun way to spend some time together! Just make sure you don’t go too crazy with the spending. Find something that you both like and that fits within your budget.
Pride Month is a great time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and show your support for the cause. There are many ways to do this, but one of the best ways is to spend quality time with your partner. You can bond with your partner, show your support for the community, and have a lot of fun simultaneously! So get out there and enjoy Pride Month with your partner.
