June was celebrated all over the world as the Pride month, and LGBTQIA community from over the world came together to proclaim their pride. As you must be aware October is marked as Pride Month fighting the good fight. In all solidarity, here is our list of Wallpapers, Widgets, Icons and My Story to show our pride. Choose one of the following and support pride.
La Muerte (by Moore D3) – This depiction of Lady of Death clad in color red to show undying passion and celebration of life is enhanced in the theme. The color seems to symbolize honesty, zeal and love for life itself. The red of this popular pagan-Christian figure of life over death is the perfect symbol of the fight for gay rights, and the expressive colors will sit well as wallpaper on your phone to mark the Pride.
Heal Your Heart (by iLiekSkittlez) – The theme speaks of healing of the heart and mind with its rich and explosive colors. A physical wound may heal or not depending on a lot of things, but one often tends to disregard emotional trauma which is almost as likely to leave a mark on us. It takes a lot of effort and love from people around us and ourselves to help heal the arrow to the soul, and this wallpaper speaks to that process, as shared on the author’s webpage.
Sunlight and Energy – Pride Month (by SimplySuburban) – The pride flag has the yellow band that represents the warmth and glow of the sun, and the wallpaper theme brings out the yellow distinctively. Titled Sunlight and Energy aptly, it is representative of a people’s drive to save their lives and celebrate their love under the yellow umbrella of the Sun.
Here Comes a Thought (by AgentWhiteHawk) – Here Comes a Thought is a unique work, reminding us to be careful of not just the effect our actions and feeling have on others, but also the way they would affect people when we bottle them up. It’s critical to ‘take a moment and find yourself’ as they call it, to see where you are in your mind and claw your way back to harmony.
Nature (by MoishPain) – The green is the distinctive color of nature, of life on our planet and of growth. The green of the Pride flag is a defiant declaration of the natural place the community occupies in the evolution of human beings, and also celebrates their joys and pains and life as life of the planet Earth.
Freedom (by M Sweet Candy) – The purple of the Pride flag is spirit, and this art piece by MSweetCandy is a celebration of the spirit, both the spirit of the Pride and the human race, as a singular girl dances heedless against the city lights. The way she is lost in the joy and spirit of this ritual called dance sits well with the amazing spirit of the LGBTQI community and the people leading the fight for their liberation from chains of secrecy and silence.
