With a song in our hearts in support for our friends south of the border, as this week saw a much-needed leap in progress (buh-bye DOMA!) there was much to celebrate.
And this year, my Mum was the Grand Marshal of the Toronto Pride Parade. I can't even deal with that. I'd always figured it would happen one day, just never thought that one day would be so soon! GLORIOUS!
I'm in wrecked recovery mode today. And it's Canada Day, to boot, so methinks the plans will involve my couch, Super Nintendo, some take-out and some buddies. Lovesit.
As usual, marching with PFLAG remains the most incredible thing. Seeing these wonderful parents and family members, out in support of not just their own blood, but the entire community; such love. Truly gives me hope that future generations will be welcomed into this world with open minds and open hearts, instead of shut Closet doors.
Seeing pro-Equality teachers from the Ontario Catholic Schoolboard, proudly proclaiming their support of their LGBTQ students: INSPIRED!
Oh, such a day. Such a wonderful wonderful day.
Here are a few snippets of the radness that was Pride Sunday :D
