So I got the butt in gear and went to Santa Fe Pride. A small, (compared to Albuquerque's 15,000) but uplifting event to give me that old familiar invincible feeling of community, camaraderie, and pride.
I have marched, waved flags, protested at the Supreme Court, written letters, been on the evening news, done workshops, facilitated groups and written a memoir - all in the fight for visibility, coming out and attaining our civil rights.
Why do we need PRIDE events? To remind us where we've been, what we've achieved and to energize us to never go back.
