It was only 50 years ago that the first Pride March took place. It's been nearly 57 years since Martin Luther King Jr. spoke his famous words, "I have a dream" at the March on Washington. And it's been 100 years since women won the right to vote. That doesn't sound like a long time, does it?
There's so much change going on in our country, and I look back at moments like that: the first Pride march, the civil rights march on Washington, the Suffragette movement, and I am inspired by all those amazing folks who've blazed trails before us.
Since the Pride Parade isn't happening this year, I wanted to share with you the magic of last year's World Pride. It was seriously amazing! The entire island of Manhattan was filled with cheers and rainbows.
I'm under 5 feet, so there's only so much I could see of the parade, but it didn't matter. I was surrounded by love. Happy Pride!
