HAPPY #NCOD! No matter what one’s sexuality is, today we bang any drum we can find for awareness & equality because we MUST do this in the face of ignorance and intolerance. Paint the town pink and wash the streets with rainbows! Happiness, community & love rule this day. ♥
I wanted to include one of my favourite photos of 2010 in this post. This is shot by Kevin McDermott for OurSceneTV‘s coverage of NYC Pride 2010. Featured are the IMMACULATE Jessica Clark & Matt Maggiacomo, who hosted. ~I love what Jessica’s wife, Lacey Stone, said about this picture: “You’re Lady Gay-berty!” LOL! Love them bunches~!
And may we PLEASE take today (like everyday) to do all we can to end bullying & bashing and hate-fueled spite? We’ve had quite enough of young people taking their own lives because of it. Life is short as it is. There isn’t enough time for hate. If you’re feeling blue because of anything like that or know someone who is and there is potential for someone to get hurt, please look into The Trevor Project – 24/7 Suicide Prevention Hotline & LGBT Youth Resource – at http://www.thetrevorproject.org/
Also, I plan to shoot and post my NOH8 Campaign photo of myself for my birthday later this month so stay tuned!
