Pridefest STL


It's that time of year again. PrideFest has grown enormously in recent years. What a change from my youth, when you could get arrested for being openly gay, to today, when there was a special pull-out section of the local newspaper about the event. Now, I'm as straight as the shortest distance between two points but I want all of humanity to be treated equally and with respect. It has been a long struggle and it is not done.

I got a fair amount of pictures yesterday, limited by some back problems. The big parade is today. No question that I will be there. Mrs. C is marching with a group of progressive Lutheran churches. Stay tuned.

Nice the adoption of the brides cakes with the gay couples. You have to look good to get it.

Love the cake toppers too. Our parade is today but it is a bit rainy so they may not get the 1 million spectators they usually have.

The Pride parade here is in a few weeks.
