bilingual pride facts 

because acronyms are basically impossible in Arabic I was curious what the accepted equivalent of LGBT was. I grew up a clueless straight boy so I didn't know offhand.

turns out it's ู…ุฌุชู…ุน ุงู„ู…ูŠู… mujtamaa al-meem, literally "meme community" or "meme society"

happy pride everyone

the Arabic names for the different components of LGBT all start with the letter ู… meem, the M sound.

lesbian = ู…ุซู„ูŠุงุช mithlayat
gay = ู…ุซู„ูŠูˆู† mithlyeen
bisexual = ู…ุฒุฏูˆุฌูŠ ุงู„ู…ูŠูˆู„ muzdawjay al-muyul
transgender = ู…ุชุญูˆู„ูˆู†/ ู…ุชุญูˆู„ุงุช ุงู„ุฌู†ุณ mutahawaleen / mutahawilat al-jins

so the acronym would actually just be ู…ู…ู…ู… MMMM lol. instead, it's the meme society, which is, I think, extremely very good.
