Queer Pride!

November 2, 2008

Yesterday was LGBT-etcetera PRIDE!

I met another transboy, in person, for the first time.

I helped hand out pink balloons.

I talked to several queer groups about joining forces to promote LGBT visibility in my school.

I recieved 13 condoms and 20 lubricants from several different volunteers, including retired people!

I fled from dozens of cameras at first, but then I realized that if my family saw me being so happy, they couldn’t be mad.

I’m swamped in schoolwork right now, but I have lots to write about later. Hope you’re all well!

    Looks like a party! Glad you made it. I love the Tango photo. Looks like Joaquim Phoenix.

    I’m glad, too! I thought I would be paranoid about my parents finding out… but I’ve learned to lie by now : )

    There are some great pictures on Flickr (too bad I couldn’t find my camera!).

    Very cool! I’m glad you were able to go and have a good time.

    The radio things sounds exciting, yo.

    Sorry, I talk like a skater/Californian. And I comment a lot. Appologies for both.

    But don’t underestimate the power of small acts. Someone, somewhere heard you talking on the radio, and it helped them. Probably because they knew then that they weren’t as alone as they thought. Or maybe they always knew that and you just re-enforced it.

    Che Brandon, no problem. I always enjoy feedback, especially if it’s positive!

    The last paragraph of your comment reminds me of Harvey Milk’s speeches :-)
