Seattle Pride was this weekend. I went to the parade with a couple of friends. It’s mostly businesses in the parade, along with gay clubs and sports teams and other gay groups, plus churches and some other local organizations.
I get all choked up when the PFLAG (parents & friends of lesbians & gays) groups go by. Not because my family gave me a hard time at all – they were great. However, I know that some people are disowned & cut off when they come out. I tend to mouth “thank you” to them when they walk by.
I also really appreciate the churches who show up to show that they are fine with gay people, unlike some other, more vocal churches that show up along the route telling us how we’re going to hell.
For all of my pix from the parade, go here.
