Signs that it’s Atlanta Pride Weekend are everywhere, but you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. A deluge of people are busy putting their issues in writing and serving it on a stick. Let’s look.
It’s just not a Pride parade without protesters or the gays who engage or block them on Pansy Patrol. But theirs are hardly the only signs in the works right now. Parade marchers, counter-protestors, proud parents and queers of every stripe are right this minute conceiving, cutting out, marking up, painting and finalizing their cleverly crafted signs with plans to be fabulously not so subtle. Bull horns not required.
Haters gonna hate. Wear something fabulous.
But lovers gonna negate. Bring your own signs.
Lovers gonna love.
Because love remembers.
Pride is determined.
Pride is poz.
Pride is femme.
Pride is butch.
Pride is even straight, queerly.
Pride means keeping all your original body parts.
And making friends.
Most of the time.
Hate? Rainbow love shuts it down. Happy Pride, y'all.
