Portable Weirdness will be at Salisbury Pride this Saturday, June 24th. Get your face to the place! It's free to the public to soak up some music, dance, fashion statements that are good for the soul, community info, human rights info, and some excellent opportunities to support your local artists and crafters and score some quality loot in one swell foop.
You know what else happens when you show up at GLBT Pride events? A kid
that may be getting told "you're an embarrassment" or "you're a pervert"
or "God hates you" at school or at home, with or without getting
slapped around along
with it, sees that they aren't alone. Someone who
got fired from their job or run out of their place to live or denied
service at a business sees that other people give a crap what happens to
them. Government officials see the numbers of people who want equality
You don't even have to accept GLBT lifestyles to do all that. All you have to do is say "I'm not content to have some of my fellow human beings treated like garbage, even if I don't agree with them". We all bleed red, people.
And maybe, just maybe, the more people say that, the fewer times we'll have to know that GLBT people bleed the same color as all other Homo sapiens.
