Live from Pride

Posted by on June 26 at 12:29 PM

Mostly, I walked along Harvard today to avoid the gay pride crowds on Broadway. I was up on Broadway for a bit, though. Here’s what I saw:

1) A sign that said “Keep Pride on Broadway.” I disagree. I say march thru downtown so the ‘out and proud’ mantra actually means something. Staying on Capitol Hill is like staying in the closet.

2) A sign that said: “Civil Unions Aren’t Enough!” Despite the potential political suicide of this sentiment, I have to agree. Civil Unions seem like a “separate but equal” kind of solution to me.

3) “Grass roots” mayoral candidate Christal Wood. I’d be stretching it if I said she had three people marching with her.
