Late June is Gay Pride!!  A time to remember the drag queens who fought back in New York; A time to celebrate our uniqueness: A time to think about the strides taken over the years in 'These Puritanical United States"

We in the LGBTQi community mark Pride with parades, street festivals, bbq's and such.

With rainbow flags on each street pole, the City of San Fransisco was ready for Pride in May.

People  will gather or have already come together in cities from Houston to Key West. Seattle to Chicago and all  points  between.

Being a Florida guy, I'll be in Ft Lauderdale's  "Stonewall  Festival"

Proud to live openly queer, proud to live in a county with a decent 'civil rights' ordinance,

Proud to have the President speaking about my/our rights

I'm not proud of the divisions that politics and so called religious people who's ignorance feeds fear.

I'm not proud of a country that has more people locked  up for what's being called "HIV criminalization"

I'm not proud of Hersey  PA's school pulling a "Ryan White" on a student.

And though the article inside is well written, who is proud of this cover page?

This is about getting tested and the high prevalence of HIV in South East Florida,

Let's be proud together, to enjoy the communities that support us, shop at stores where I know my hard earned money goes.  And wear glitter, LOTS OF GLITTER!!!
