A little Pride?

Spent a long weekend in Harrisburg with my two best girlfriends Mindy and Kenny.  We went for the Pride Festival of Central PA.  Had a great time.  We went to a drag show on Friday at Liquid 891.  Hit the parade and festival on Saturday and then a night of drinking and dancing.  We had a great time.  I am always surprised by how much hate people seem to have for the LGBT community.  We met so many warm and funny people.  It makes me sad to think of the struggle they go through every day just for being who they are.  Not sure how with all the issues in this country homosexuality even makes the list.  Looking forward to next year.

Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?  ~Ernest Gaines
