I went to Pride today. It was absolutely amazing to be a part of such an outpouring of love and unity and I must admit I got a little bit happy teary.
It was all the more fabulous because I’d have never been able to go before and show my support to the LGBT+ community, I’d have only been chided for spending time with ‘q****s and freaks’ (OH’s words and not mine).
Most of all, I got to do something that I enjoyed instead of backing down and catering to his wants.
Dear Walker, it is so great getting back into doing your own thing isn’t it, a total feeling of freedom and happiness. Also attending Pride, experessing yourself & being free to be who you are. this is what every person deserves. I feel as though i’m on the threshold of a new life, it is wonderful. Congratulations.

This is so great, that you went there!
I planned to go and then I did not, although I was looking forward to it.
I was very disappointed with myself.
The thought of the huge crowds scared me immensely and I stayed at home. I watched a lot of videos about it though.
What I saw was wonderful.
I hope I feel better next year and can go then.
