The San Diego LGBT Pride Rally and Festival is back for another round of half-naked gay men (and often times half-naked women) with glistening abs and tight butts storming the streets of Hillcrest!!
Lucky for me, I live in North Park and it’s right next to all the gay action. I WILL be there supporting California’s right to love and running around like a flamboyant, hippy fairy, socializing with anyone who is wiling to reciprocate. I also will be volunteering for the festival on Saturday, 17 July.
A little history: Pride originally started in 1969 in New York City, when police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar located in the Greenwich Village. As a result, people began Stonewall Riots and it is believed to be the starting of the modern gay rights movement.
Gay pride movements are held worldwide to this day, in countries such as Africa, Asia, Europe, Spain, North America and Australia, just to name a few.
Whether you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, straight, unsure, or all of the above, come out and show your support. Not only is this supporting the gay community, you are supporting your right to be an individual and live your life free of oppression.
