"It's a catchall label of pride"Funny. I don't know many heterosexuals who say "I'm straight and proud of it!" Your experience may vary, but from what I've seen, even "gay and proud" (as an actual statement someone might proclaim to others, not simply stating a fact like "gay and not ashamed" or whatever) is outside the norm. See, when people talk about "gay pride," the vast majority of us think about... well, see The Onion article above. (It's humor, but it's part social commentary.) So... you can tell us we don't understand what LGBT means all you want. Experience tells us otherwise. YMMV.
