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.
