Pride Month

June is Pride Month, when gay men and women step out and are even more colourful than usual!

There are lots of pride parades, parties, and festivals in June, and lots of focus on equality issues as well.

Since I came out in the late 80s, the parades have evolved from the outrageous to the corporate, which is I think both good and bad, and part of the gradual mainstreaming of the movement as we move from in from being outsiders to society. They are still a celebration, and it is always interesting to see which politicians and which companies have a presence, and which are not there and avert eye contact when asked about it.

Here's some of the lighter stuff, from someecards.com...
