Honestly I spent a long time feeling **** about being aromantic so my friend (who is NB) suggested I go to pride with her. I was really excited about it until my other friend said that straight cis people shouldn't go to pride except as allies. And I am straight because I'm heterosexual but aromanticism is part of the LGBTQ+ spectrum so doesn't that mean pride is for me too? I mean, when you see a list of LGBTQ+ flags the aro flag is usually there so it's not like I'm just inserting myself into the community.
I guess that I just want somewhere where people aren't going to judge me about who I am but at the same time I don't want to jump in on pride (when there are queer or trans people who face way bigger hardships than I do) if I don't belong. I know it's fairly niche but have any straight aro people on here been to pride?
Would a heterosexual aromantic person be shunned from Pride?
