I’m late with my blog post this week and I apologise.
I’ve been back in my routine of writing and totally forgot about it until just now.
I’m definitely in the zone. It’s a wonderful feeling!
My girl and I went to our local 🌈Pride🏳️🌈 celebration this past Saturday and it was awesome! So many more people than last year, more vendor booths, more food, more organizations of support and of course a wonderful feeling of belonging that we of the LGBTQIA community can’t usually get anywhere else.
There was music, drag queens, a tiny bit of rain in the morning and hot sunshine later in the day. We couldn’t have asked for a better day.
Some people in our community don’t like the commercial aspect of Pride. I understand where they’re coming from, but I welcome it. Compared to years of being shunned and ignored, I prefer to bring as much exposure as possible to encourage the acceptance of our community.
Thank you to those inclusive and supportive companies that helped make Pride 2019 a huge success all over the US.
We’ve come this far, but still have far to go.
A shout out to the transgendered individuals out there. You are loved. You are respected and you are also some of the bravest people I’ve ever met and we all need to have your back.
We are all human beings. Let’s keep the dialog open and talk about what’s happening to transgendered people in the US. Especially black transgender women. We can’t sit by and do nothing. We need to speak out. All of us. Every single one of you reading this post. Share this with others.
Say something, do something and be an example to your kids, your significant other, and your family and friends.
We can make a difference. Hopefully we can open some minds and save some lives. Love is love. Be who you are!
