The Paris Pride March (La Marche des Fiertés), formerly known as Gay Pride, raises serious questions about the very essence of the LGBTQIA+ community. Marco Drion, creator of HappyGayTV, wonders if the term "gay" still has a meaning and if it is still representative of this diversity. On his way to the Paris Pride March in 2022, he was struck by the virtual disappearance of the word "gay" in favor of other, perhaps more politically correct, terminologies. In a world where identities are fragmenting, what is the role of the word "gay" and who can really identify with it?

A change of name, an identity in question
Gay Pride, once a symbol of pride and unity, has been pushed into the background by a politically correct Pride March. Marco Drion then wonders if the term "gay" has been ousted from the event for reasons of inclusion or if this testifies to a loss of identity. Indeed, HappyGayTV takes its name from the Stonewall riots, where the word "gay" originally meant "Good as You". But who still remembers this meaning today?
A controversial investigation
Determined to find answers, Marco Drion launches into a controversial investigation during the Pride March of 2022. His microphone in hand, he questions the participants on the current meaning of the word "gay" and what it means to them. . The answers are diverse and often contradictory, perhaps reflecting the fragmentation of the LGBTQIA+ community. Some feel excluded or ignored by this word, while others see it, on the contrary, as a celebration of growing diversity and the emergence of new identities.
The loss of the essence of the community
Beyond the simple change in terminology, Marco Drion wonders if the loss of the word "gay" does not mean the loss of the very essence of the LGBTQIA+ community. As more and more terms emerge to describe different sexual identities and orientations, the word "gay" seems to be diluted in a sea of acronyms and labels. What does this word mean to those who still use it, and is it still representative of the historic struggle for LGBTQIA+ rights?
Rethinking identity and inclusion
Marco Drion's investigation raises key questions about identity and inclusion within the LGBTQIA+ community. Is it time to rethink the terms used to reflect the growing diversity? Perhaps there is a need to strike a balance between inclusiveness and preserving the history and essence of the community. The debate is on, and it's time to rethink our understanding of what it means to be "gay" in an ever-changing world.
To conclude, the Paris Pride March and the evolution of the term "gay" raise deep questions within the LGBTQIA+ community. As identities fragment and new terminologies emerge, it is crucial to ask what the true meaning of the word “gay” is and if it is still representative of the historic struggle for rights and recognition. Has HappyGayTV, which wants to be a channel that brings the community together, finally chosen its name well, or is it already obsolete, not to say politically incorrect? It is time to rethink our understanding of identity and inclusion within the LGBTQIA+ community, to preserve the essence of this struggle while celebrating growing diversity.
