Y'all I went to New York Pride today and I have literally never been in such a fiercely positive environment before. Like… Random strangers were smiling, waving at and complimenting each other. I had multiple strangers smile at my rainbow flag. Someone winked at me. A lovely trans lady gave me a beaded necklace because I wasn’t colorful enough.
I ended up giving away my rainbow flag because I’d get into so much trouble for bringing that home, but while it was in my hand I felt like the happiest person on the planet.
