Happy Pride

I ventured over to the Village yesterday to haved breakfast with a young friend of mine who happens to be gay.  It was interesting to view Pride activities through his eyes.

I was not impressed with the older men who were flirting with him and saying things I thought were inappropriate given that it was assumed I was his mother - and I am no prude!  They were sitting at the table next to us during breakfast.  

However, my friend was not concerned with them at all so I took my lead from him. He is learning more about the gay lifestyle as he experiences things like the Church Street Village and I am proud of him.

Acceptance is the key.  It's working.
