Silence and PRIDE
Then, I stayed with friends in Atlanta and was able to attend Saturday's PRIDE in Piedmont Park. The rain held off long enough for me to enjoy being around a lot of really out gay people, doing things straights take for granted: holding hands, kissing in public, just being themselves. Exhibits, booths, supporters, organizations, and some great scenery, too! Woof.
To read and pray and give thanks for being me, and being gay, and for grace, strength, and courage; these are good things. To be out and proud and encouraged by "family"; these are good things, too.
To be able to have both within the same week. That was great!
