I missed Pride a few weeks ago at home but I got to go to Minneapolis Pride today :) Compared to the Salt Lake Pride, it was larger with more booths and people. There were many companies, non-profits, vendors, artists, churches, food, political parties, and movements booths. It was free admission which was nice. They had a few stages for performances and we watched some drag numbers: always entertaining.
I love how exuberant Pride fests are. I love what they stand for. I love feeling like someday, there will be equality for all! When I see all the LGBT and allies gathered together, I can't help but know that soon the United States (and the world) will get it right; that we will ALL be considered equal.
Some of the highlights include:
Paying $1 - donations go to a pitbull rescue - to get some puppy breath. I got to hold this adorable and sleepy pitbull pup for a few minutes. He melted my heart.
We visited a vendor selling sooooo many buttons. I chose four that describe me pretty well! Science and evolution, peace, equality and pride, and greenness! More to add to my mochila morada [purple backpack].
