Being out and proud could mean many different things to many different people. It can mean coming out to your parents as gay. It could mean coming out to your parents as a bisexual or lesbian. It could mean embracing your cisgender identity. Or, it could mean making your booty clap for the Complex mic during the annual New York City Pride Parade. Resident troublemaker and truthseeker, Bauce Sauce, went to the parade this year to get the scoop on what it means to be proud of yourself in 2014. Hint: Being proud doesn't necessarily mean being homosexual. Being proud means accepting yourself and others as they are—free of judgement.
