I don't think you are a bigot for asking this important question. I think those who accused you of that need to rethink their intolerance.
When you hear gay "pride" or "proud" to be gay, think "not ashamed". "Not ashamed" is not a positive affirmation and therefore a bad slogan. Being "proud" is a positive affirmation and therefore is used instead to indicate "not ashamed".
Thanks for your desire to be educated in this matter. BTW: I am proud to be a conservative hetrosexual.

If an honest man is wrong, after demonstrating that he is wrong, he either stops being wrong or he stops being honest.
