Well. Since it’s June, it’s time to plan for the Pride Parade at the end of the month. Usually, an email goes out at the last minute to ask the staff at work to walk the parade.
This year, I texted a friend who has asked me to walk with his company in the past. They were dragging their feet about asking people to walk the parade, too.
Early last week, I finally got the information about walking with work. I signed up and asked my cousin if she was interested in joining me. She was unsure. I signed her up with me, just in case.
Yesterday, I got the text that my friend signed me up with his company. His group walks earlier than my group, so now I’m trying to decide if I want to walk twice or just walk with my friend. I suspect I’ll be hot and tired after the first run through, so I’ll just be walking with the first group.
I am happy that so many people are a part of this celebration of Pride! I feel like no one has been doing much because of the pandemic, but this event is so important to the LGBT community, it needs to be celebrated.
Happy Pride, everyone!
