What is Agender Pride Day?
Agender Pride Day is one of the latest LGBTQ+ awareness days, but that doesn't make it any less important than others! The core focus of this awareness date is to promote awareness to both the agender community and individuals.
Although Agender Pride Day is a great time to celebrate those who identify as agender, it's also important to highlight the hate, discrimination and inequality faced by agender people around the world.
The hatred towards agender people and other LGBTQ+ individuals must stop to create a a more accepting world. It's important to educate others on the impact negative actions may have whilst also highlighting that everybody deserved to live how they feel comfortable.
If you identify as agender or know somebody close who does, remember that Joshua Lloyd supports you and is proud of who you are!

The agender pride flag has been around since 2014 by Salem who identifies as an agender and panromantic demisexual with they/she pronouns. The flag was created at a time when Tumblr was experiencing an increase of gender expressions with the agender flag being created to increase visibility of agender identities and for agender individuals to reclaim their own identity.
