June is Pride Month! And this year I am taking pride celebrating for the first time, not as an ally, but as a wholehearted participant.
What better way to kick off celebrations for all things LGBTQIA+ than putting on some lacy smalls and wrapping myself in the house flag!
I don’t tend to label my sexuality any more than I label any other part of myself.
I’m just me.
While I haven’t always been so liberated I am lucky to live in a world where I am encouraged to embrace my sexual liberty.
Free from shame and fear.

Taking pride in myself for LiFE was first published as part of every my Every Damn Day in June. And Lingerie is For Everyone efforts. If you enjoyed this one you might also enjoy this post? Breaking The Rules For Life.
From the story of how the barefoot sub became the woman she is today, to toy reviews, with a hefty dose of contemplation, a sprinkling of erotica and a LOT of nudity in between, you can be sure to find something to tickle your fancy at A Leap Of Faith.
i think this is the best quote from your writings “I am lucky to live in a world where I am encouraged to embrace my sexual liberty.”
it was always my dream. and i am glad to hear that you are.
love the fact that you tend not to label yourself in any way.
LOVE the pic
It is such a shame that not everyone can embrace their inner deviants, but hopefully as time passes more will be able to be true to themselves. With or without the labels society seems to expect. 😊
Love this: “I don’t tend to label my sexuality any more than I label any other part of myself.”
You look gorgeous. Love that Pride flag.
It’s taken long enough to find understanding within myself around my sexuality. I’m all about the rainbow! N x
Sometimes it takes a long time to learn how to be yourselves. I have a friend who I’ve known for 40 years. He was married and his daughters were friends of my daughters. We went to the same church. One day my daughter told me he was splitting from his wife. I called him to encourage him to work it out. I had been through a divorce and the pain and difficulties were not fun. He told me he had realized he was gay. So what could I do but wish him well. He is now married to another man and enjoying life. But it took him a long tome to figure it out. Life would be so much simpler if we learned these things quickly. Great post!
Yourselves should have been our selves…
Ahhh, But if he had learnt that lesson sooner he wouldn’t have had his daughters, and you may never have met him. I believe life happens as intended and it is all about the lessons we pick up along the way.
Thank you for sharing this though. It is lovely to see that he has been able to find the path to true happiness.
Beautiful! I’m glad you are able to take pride in yourself now!
I have a post bubbling away about that journey, and it was long denied. But with the care of Sir I came to understand there is no shame in exploring a curiosity, and then realised, when following my own path, that it’s where I belong. 😍
You look amazing in this picture and I love the words as well. We should all be so free! Happy Pride! Thanks for linking up!
Thank you Violet. Happy pride to you too, thank you for providing the space to share.
