Why is pride forced? I just want to be normal and blend in, I don't understand why I should be proud about something I have no control over.

Pride is not about being proud about your sexuality or gender identity, that's simply how you're born, it's not a "merit". It's about being proud of living your identity openly and freely, despite all the hate and discrimination that LGBT people still must face. That's worth celebrating! But you don't have to go to pride parades if you don't want - living freely is all about doing only what you want to do. There are hundreds of ways to live your identity openly.
