Transsexual Pride March
It’s pride week in Toronto and this weekend is going to be a scorcher. The weather has so far been unbearably humid. I was debilitated by a headache all day and could barely move during the afternoon. I had to drag myself out of bed and go for a walk because I believe that fresh air does the body and soul some good.
The Transsexual Pride March was held this evening and I headed up Church Street to support a group in my community of fellow queers that needs to be heard and given their rights, because to exclude them from our society is shameful.
I hope that one day we’re more collectively tolerant of one another. As Harvey Milk once said:
“It takes no compromising to give people their rights. It takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no survey to remove repressions.”
Saying that, this is Canada, and everyone has equal rights. I wish my country was more unfair so I would have something to protest.
UPDATE: I had to correct some embarrassing grammar mistakes. I’m drunk. Sue me.
