Went to Vancouver Pride this weekend and had a pretty great time. I got to go to the Trans March on Friday for the first time and it was amazing. I’m still stuck in small-town mode and I expected it to be like four people with a couple of flags but it’s actually really well attended and it felt really amazing to be at. I also met Morgane Oger and Randall Garrison, two amazing politicians that I really admire though I’m an idiot and forgot to take pictures.
Sunday, I went to the Van Pride Parade which I recognize has some issues, but I have to say, overall I was pretty impressed with how there were a lot more of a grassroots feeling then the last time I was there a few years ago and while there is a strong corporate presence it didn’t feel as intense as before and overall it felt a lot more inclusive which was great to see. And because I’m me, I had to wear a political shirt.
This was meant to be platonic familial Riley-centric OT6, but Chase apparently doesn’t like to share. Do you disagree with my choice of house placement? Come talk to me here. I also made graphics that don’t look like complete shit: yaaaaaaaay! [Quotes on the graphics are taken from the first and fifth books’ Sorting Songs]
