Performer at 2009 Seattle Gay Pride Parade

Gay Pride in Seattle

Every year in the month of June gays march throughout the country. They display pride in their community and stand proud for the world to see. Yet some people remain masked for reasons we should not be proud of. We come out by the thousands to witness these events all over the world. Many supporting a loved one, some just to gawk and others attempting to change a force they cannot control. Many of us are told at a young age to be proud of who we are and to stand up for our beliefs. I hope someday we can all respect those attribute in others, even if it offends us.

Look the gay's want marrige and i don't have a problem with that. I support it, but please do you really have to have a parade about it. Doesn't that make you a freak show? Just wondering. Again I support gay rights just not the freak show part.

And what exactly do you mean by "Freak" Show?? There were just as many if not more "freaks" participating in the Fremont Fair then in the Gay Pride Parade!

When i see these blow up dicks and kids hugging them and floats with giant dicks sticking up I guess I just dont see the pride in the community. There is a much better way to get your point across then this manner. Let kids make their decision later.
