I'm pretty sure no one has ever been told 'it's a sin to be straight!' or 'I'm better than you because you're black and I'm white.' Gay people and black people have dealt with prejudices, discrimination, and a lot of hate that most white or straight people haven't had to experience.
Those parades and and Black History Month are basically saying 'even though I and people like me have been put down and looked down upon for years, I realize that it's ok that I am what I am, and I'm going to celebrate it.'

And I realize that the ideal would be to not need to have a gay pride or Puerto Rican day parade, or black history, Jewish history, or Hispanic history months. But thats the way it is now, and it's probably not going to change anytime soon.
