I’m not even sure how to start this blog. I have so much swimming around inside my head right now. I have had one of the best weekends in a very long time, all starting Friday night with a last minute decision to go see some live music. This entire weekend has been about being with people I love, adore and respect, about celebrating a community I’m so effing PROUD to be part of and about being on stage with some absolutely amazing talent. In 3 days I managed to see live music, The Dyke March, celebrate my dear friend Cate McKim’s birthday (she lost track of how my times she celebrated 😉 ), PRIDE, reading at PRIDE and see a lot of my favourite people and friends perform. Yesterday actually felt like a great big party with all my friends and family, without the drunken uncle trying to start a fight. It was about celebrating the freedom to express who you are without judgement, about showing your true colours without fear. We live in a city where you can be Queer without fear!
Below are some photo’s from the weekend and a link to Cate McKim’s blog about the events. http://lifewithmorecowbell.wordpress.com/2012/07/02/friends-words-music-toronto-pride-2012/.
