-The pride you are thinking of is very solid, despite you thinking it's flimsy and comparable to zip code pride (...ugh). Transgendered people, queer people (non-straight people)
, people of color, women, etc. have this pride because they are all oppressed groups, people that have been made to be ashamed of their identities. This type of pride isn't a trophy pride; it is a pride that is defiance in the face of oppression, saying, "No, I am not ashamed of who I am, and I don't care what the status quo says about whether or not I should."
