    I love your pics of Pride….this is what a Pride Celebration should be about, not a huge street party like they have become here in the States. We have come a long, long way from marching with bags over our heads to hide our identities but we still have a long way to go for true equality. Our party is premature and your pics will serve to teach us a lesson in humility and solidarity. Thanx!!

    Can I have gay pride without being gay?

    I never knew about the paper bag thing. That’s terrible. I know it has to feel like baby steps, but I do think things are moving in the right direction.

    I am also gay proud of my country for recognizing that it’s not about “gay rights” it’s about “human rights”.
