Well I never expected this to happen on my 4th anniversary of arriving in USA, I celebrated with family and friends at Seattle’s gay pride parade. If somebody had told me about this show several years ago, I would have told “NEVER will I go there! ” So life is constantly changing and you never know what you will do in the future.
We got a spot in the shade and after the first hour we were cold, but we never thought to go home.
It was the first parade which was so long for me; it was from 11 till 2 pm … Can you guess how many people were there? We saw clowns (not sad or happy, more the freaky kinky type) we saw fun floats and lots of companies who offered support to the community. OK there were a few nude people and some kink too, but mostly what we saw were people letting their hair down and have fun in the sun!
Coming from another country I was not prepared for what I saw, but I found myself simply caught up in the fun. Plus watching our daughter and friends dancing and laughing was just contagious and inspiring, more than I expected and a great time was had by all. My husband took some great photos while we cut loose, so here are a few to share a great day with you!
