Wrong definition of pride

Pride noun

1) a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements.

2) the consciousness of one's own dignity.

When he says he's proud to be gay, he means he's not ashamed of it. And that nobody else should.

Nothing in the gay pride movement, or the black pride movement for that matter, is about describing it as a personal accomplishment.
