One of the most recognizable symbols on the planet is the Rainbow flag and its association the GayLesbianBisexualTransgender people, commonly lumped together under the acronym GLBT. I am a lump in that group and it's not the flag that gives me pride, it's the diversity that it represents. It's my tribe. Here are a series of images of members of my tribe celebrating with Pride. It covers a wide selection of Pride Parades. Some, many, are first time events. Some are old hat. Some occur in the midst of broad toleration, other in places where the participates are literally risking their lives. Such courage humbles me, while the tide of evolution and tolerance gives me great hope. Enjoy!
I was born on a bitterly cold end of January night in the year 1961. It was seven years to the day after the birth of Oprah Winfrey, and one year before the death of Robert Frost on that same day. Cool associations both.
I was the first child of older parents (my mother was 42). I love the color yellow. I am single, and fascinated with life.
