I Have Pride
I’ve had a lot of personal crises this week, and I would like to apologize to my readers for not updating as regularly this week. I’m actually finding it really hard to find something to write about today (obviously, as this post is scheduled to go live sometime after 5pm today).
I am very excited for the San Francisco Pride celebration this weekend. I love living in a city where sexuality is not something to be ashamed of or hidden, but is celebrated and lived openly. One of my personal heroes, Dan Savage, frequently has callers to his podcast who are talking about being unable to live openly as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer in their respective hometowns. He almost always recommends that they move somewhere like San Francisco, where the culture is overwhelmingly accepting.
I am proud to live in this city. I am proud of those who have had the courage to live their lives in a manner that is authentic to who they are.
I will be at the parade on Sunday, and now that I have found my camera, I look forward to sharing some pictures with all of you, dear readers!
