NYC Pride!

Gay Pride Weekend has arrived here in NY and the big parade is tomorrow. Ladies and Gentlemen if you haven't started already, go out get get your PRIDE on. This year is the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and we as the LGBT community have 2 things to do both during the festivities and beyond: First, we owe it to our LGBT forefathers... foremothers... foreparents, to take full advantage of the freedoms that their courage afforded us. And second, to be as brave as they were and to fight to secure even more freedoms for the members of the LGBT community members who have yet to be born.

And if you are straight (but not narrow) come on out and show the world that we are in fact, all equal.

Oh right, and have fun bitches! Take pride in who you are. Take pride in each other. Take pride in your community. Take pride in your differences. Take pride in changing the world.
