I’m a firm believer of people being equal. And unique. Tall, short, gay, straight, thin, fat, male, female, black, brown, white, purple, green, whatever. We are all humans and need to be respected. I love the idea of individuals gathering together to show support for each other. And, I kinda’ like to have fun, too. Guess what? You can have fun and show support this weekend at the Long Beach Pride Festival! It’s Saturday and Sunday at Marina Green Park on Shoreline Drive from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm. Their theme this year is Solidarity Through Pride.

It’s not just for the LBGT community; it’s for everyone. It’s for a diverse crowd, and even includes a Family Fun Zone. Having such an all consuming group of people involved not only shows support, it helps to educate people. Not to mention, this celebration has become one of the premiere Pride events nationwide. I read somewhere it is the 2nd largest in the US! Why wouldn’t you want to be part of that? The parade is Sunday at 10:30 am, and the Parade Step Off is right up the street from BS on Ocean at Lindero. There are a lot of goings on for this event, so here’s a little cheat sheet. It’s gonna’ be a busy weekend (with probably a couple of adult beverages involved;) be prepared to make a ton of new friends and have more fun than you imagined…
