Pride month is officially here! All month long, hundreds of cities will be celebrating Gay Pride with parades and marches all across the country. While these can be a fun an empowering experience for LGBTQ families, sometimes we also need some additional kid-friendly way to show our gaiety. (Read: just a little bit less glitter.)
