    It sounds as though you had a marvelous time at Pride and had a successful book reading too! I’ve been living in small towns for a number of years, so they do not have Pride celebrations, sadly. I do buy more LGBT books and cheer on Pride electronically and am there in spirits as well, claiming one of the initials as my own.

    I so wish there had been a Pride celebration where I live. I am adoring all the photos on this article and hope next year to go to New York to share in the love of LGBT. Much love all!

    What a wonderful experience! It sounds like you had so much fun being not only a tourist, but as an author and a concerned citizen. I wasn’t able to attend the closest Pride event this year due to work. Hopefully I can go next year.

    I just missed Pride in my town this year, but I did see San Francisco’s once…more sedate than I expected, but the camaraderie was wonderful!

    Unfortunately no huge pride celebration, where I live (maybe in some pubs – but I don’t really go out that much). But my city isn’t that big anyway. On the other hand, my country finally paved the way for same-sex marriage. Can’t wait til it’s finalized. Same-sex marriage will make a friend of mine very happy!

    No big Pride celebration in the city where I live but in our capital it is the event of the year.

    Thank you for sharing your celebration. In my place, there was a cute little celebration, but it is a small town so… there were concerts, some performances, no parade but plenty of nice people sharing a good time!

    I hoped to hear from other people who were able to attend a celebration in person. I too have to join in via mind, spirit and electronically. I plead that none of the strides that have been made here in the US are reversed in any way. Since when have all the ideals we as a nation have fought, and stood, for so many years, become under attack once again? Keep celebrating, continue supporting each other, and work to spread love and healing. I still hope for fewer guns and less hatred and ignorance across our country and the world.
