There were many blogs and comments earlier this month, and even last, about why/whether we should continue to have PRIDE Parades ... most presented accurate honest evaluations of the many differing POV on the subject.
But, here, now that it is done for another year, here is the Number One Reason for PRIDE Parades ... and she is only 15.
Stuart Gaffney shares this: "The soft-spoken, 15-year-old wisp of a girl from Pittsburg,CA was at her first Pride Parade on Sunday, marching with a small gay youth group: "I feel like I'm home," she said. "I've been bullied a lot for being gay. ... They keep saying it gets better. I used to think they were just saying that, but seeing all this, I think maybe they're right. I think it does get better."
