Umon Pride

Lots of interesting people celebrating yesterday. Some looked oddly familiar and not quite what one would expect (see pictures.)spade queensm But everyone was having a great time and celebrating the Heritage Of Pride event.

These two were talking about going on an Olivia cruise.

The first march back in the 70’s was so totally different. It’s good to see people out and proud. I do find it interesting and very strange that so many corporations have floats and are trying to tap into the gay money and support system. Years ago most of their employees would have been fired for being LGBT. I suppose commercialism had to get on board at some point.
