Congratulations to Los Angeles Gay Pride for celebrating 45 years commemorating the Stone Wall Riots.
Thousands of people on Santa Monica Blvd. joined in the festivities by laughing and rejoicing in the freedoms that where fought by lives and passion in our nation 45 years ago. The crowd contained a spectrum of the community, from the young generation who have only been to a few Prides, to the older generations who have been supporting the festival and its history for some time. While most of the younger generation are at the festival to let loose and dance, the older generation still knows how to reflect while enjoying themselves.
We hope the younger generation will learn their Gay History as much as they want to party. Having a personal responsibility to know our history is important so we can direct our own future. My only challenge to the older generation was that they pass on their love for Gay Pride and the knowledge it brings. We have opportunities to express ourselves to our little ones of that hope, love, and how we obtained it.
So being a inquisitive Drag Queen I went around the parade and festival and caught a few off guard with some questions about their gay history. One of my favorites was Pam. I happen to catch her before she got in her car and she was more then willing to be a victim of interrogation. Now it's not so bad, I did make it multiple choice so you have options, but I did try to trip them up... Pam did well on her first question, but not on the harder one just after.
