If you have never attended Pride in your city I recommend that you do. It’s one of the best most inclusive protests you could ever attend. Yes, Pride at its heart is a protest. And if you believe in equality for all then joining a protest that is also a celebration of love should be on your to do list. It’s a lot of fun being with people who are accepting of others, period. I have never understood the desire to oppress others and I have always believed that people should be allowed to be themselves. Maybe because I deal with racism and sexism regularly I can relate to the #LGBTQ community and understand their desire to just “be.” And this is why I support Pride. We need more acceptance and love in the world.
If you didn’t know Pride is also the day that “anything goes” which means you are likely to see anything and everything… and honestly, I love it! You will never find a more entertaining experience. It is just all out FUN! And being able to share this with my partner was awesome. I have never had a boyfriend who would go to Pride with me so being able to share this experience with him was beyond fun. I’m very lucky to be with someone who not only understands why Pride exists but also supports it with me.
So of course we had a ball! And we can’t wait until next year!
