Hometown Gay Pride

I wonder if it is true of all smallish cities–but sometimes all the parades in Santa Fe feel like the SAME parade. Gay Pride had enough kids in costume and dogs to resemble the pet parade! It’s not the San Francisco of my youth–with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (bearded nuns on roller skates) but it’s still great. And I’m apt to yell and cheer whenever I see anyone I know, or my workplace’s float goes by.
I may glare at my utility bill, but I was touched to see the gas company marching with posters remembering individuals murdered in Orlando. And you don’t get Gay Rodeo unloading bales of hay just anywhere.
