I attended a Gay Pride Parade with my friend, Dan (aka. The Steel Shark), and he told to wear a purple shirt. I wasn’t sure why, but I found the only purple shirt that I owned; my Kobe Bryant shirt. When we got there, we explored the route and took pictures of people/stuff that we thought were weird and interesting. We eventually met with this group in the parade who had the NoH8 symbol. Much to my surprise, we weren’t going to be spectators taking pictures of the different groups that came by. We were IN the parade. Another surprise; there was a celebrity in our group, Christina Milian (We didn’t know this until the next day). I’ll admit though, I’ve never heard or seen any or her work. As we marched, my friend and I continued taking pictures of people and stuff that we thought were interesting. It was a good day and I got hit on by a gay dude. It was flattering even though I’m straight. It was a wonderful experience.
