A lot of people don't seem to realise how much of our day-to-day lives are subject to gender rules and restrictions until some transgender (someone who identifies as something other than the gender they were assigned at birth) loudmouth like me points it out.

Some of it is kind of ridiculous (like certain colours being meant for boys and others for girls) and I'm yet to see a gendered product that actually needed to be gendered, but for many trans folk it's a constant cause of discomfort.
While February is LGBT+ history month, June is Pride month (chosen because of the Stonewall riots) and the time most people choose to celebrate, so this summer's Pride parades and other LGBT+ events are no exception. For some, these events are seen as glorified parties and no big loss; for myself and a significant part of the LGBT+ community, these events are celebrations of freedom and the progress that has been made towards equal rights and, as such, key parts of the social calendar.
