I don’t think that Pride is something that should be celebrated once a year.
As much as I appreciate the strides the people I was with and I have made, and how crucial Pride month is for so many people, I still think that it should be something the people I was with and I celebrate all of the time.
The first time I ever visited Seattle was during their great Pride Month. I was blown away by how all involved it felt, as if the town itself opened its arms and gave me a big, boiling hug. After that I made Seattle Pride month an annual endpoint, and some years later, I decided that I did not want to leave! I think that the whole country has started embracing Pride month, but here in Seattle it isn’t just a month, that is what life is like here. It’s 1 thing to say you support gay and lesbian rights, but Seattle just doesn’t talk the talk, it walks the walk. Combine this loving, supportive community with arguably the best cannabis being grown in the world today, and you’ve got a relaxing place to live. I am not sure if I ever want to raise a family, but if I do it will be in Seattle, where I think the people I was with and I will be safe, and have access to cultural institutions. The educational method in Seattle is head of the group, from our grade schools all the way through colleges and grad schools. That is what I like for the future, but for right now I’m all about the live music scene, and the abundance of high octane cannabis.
