As you enter the city of Sermos, you immediately notice that it's buzzing with people. Sure, it's usually quite crowded, but this is something else entirely.
There's upbeat music blasting from every second corner, big banners and flags adorning buildings, and big colorful floats driving slowly through the filled streets. You see humans, Paralogos and Whifflings alike running around and laughing; some are carrying big flags, some are wearing them as capes, some are holding signs.
One of the celebrating Paralogos in question notices you looking around and separates out of the masses to walk up to you. They're carrying two excited Whifflings on their arms that energetically wave their flags in your face as soon as you're close enough to them.
"Happy Pride!" the Whifflings yell happily.
"Welcome to Sermos' Pride festival!" the Paralogos says to you. "This year's celebration is a bit more grand than the past years, isn't it?" They point around, smiling happily. "People from everywhere around Lingua travelled here to have a good time. There's so much to see and do - we can show you around, if you'd like!"
Within the world of Lingua, often in June, there are many festivals celebrating elements of Pride. The residents of the capital of Sermos are known to have boisterous celebrations- citizens, caretakers, Paralogos, and even Whifflings, all coming together to celebrate one another and the multiplicity of their relationships towards others and themselves!
While Paralogos are known to be asexual by their own biology, there are many that have found themselves in various kinds of romantic relationships, and supportive friendships, or who find themselves happier alone or only having a Caregiver Bond.
Whifflings have been rumored to have offspring meanwhile, and find themselves in many kinds of relationships sometimes culminating in children on occasion, though our research is limited on how those situations may come about... it is worth investigating!
What can be known for sure is that Lingua spans wide and ranging groups of all kinds of individuals from every walk of life, and no matter who you are, these boisterous celebrations bring everyone into a joyous and excitable spirit!
