Im not bashing gays or anything, ima start off by saying that...

But why do gays have a parade? Straits dont have it, so why do gay people need to make such a big deal out of it?

no idea. maybe for the whole "we are strong in the face of opposition" thing...or..maybe for the "we like parades a lot" thing.

i think there should be a parade to honor me. Aeg Day.

Haha...I lived in SF for a couple years..so it doesn't really bother me. I don't like the fact that they have to shove it into your face...and shut down half the city with their parade.

Guess I don't get it...Meh. :lol:

LOL, you'd think that for all their talk about not wanting to be looked upon as "different" or "unusual" they'd want to do anything but a giant circus-like parade

because they are different and want attention.

it's not because they 'want attention', it's because they have a right to be recognized for who they are, and not be demonized by closed minded idiots. let them have their parade. it only bothers homophobic pricks.

It's like an out and proud thing... I suppose because too many people today still think they should be ashamed, and so long as that kind of mindset exists, they need to go the extra mile to prove that they aren't, and nor should they be. I don't really get it either, because it's defining yourself by your sexuality, and I thought the whole idea of parades like that was to prove that they shouldn't be, but there you go.

It does seem a bit strange that they choose to do something different to try and stress that they shouldn't be treated any differently, but I think the kinds of people that do go marching for that aren't really all that representative. If I was gay I'd be comfortable enough with it not to need to jump on a big pink float to prove it, and I think most gay people are like that; I think, though I don't know, it's the ones who face more bigotry on a day to day basis that feel the need to make such a big thing of it.
