For example, here's me at my first Pride! I marched in London in 2015 at the head of the parade. They wanted a flag from every country to show global solidarity, so I marched with the flag of Serbia — since it's where my family is from. I was so overwhelmed with love and support that I made sure to attend every London Pride March until I moved to New York.

However, maybe your first Pride was some moons ago and you're surprised how different you and the event look compared with today.
