The morning started chilly and windy, typical for the bay area. The crowds gathered. The Parade started. The sun came out.
There were the usual staples of the San Francisco Parade, the Rainbow flags, the shirtless muscled men, the drag queens and the dykes on bikes, but this time there was something more.
You could see it in the Parade in the myriads of wedding gowns and groom’s tuxedos. In the numbers of same sex parents and their children marching together. In the numbers of straight parents and their gay sons and daughters holding hands proudly. In the numbers of gay young teenagers cheering in group after group. It was in the music and on the floats.
It was also on the faces of the parade spectators, a mixture of gays and straights from all races and creeds. We were shouting it together. We were calling for equality. The revolution has gathered a new energy.
The same sex marriage legalization in California was simply the rallying cry. The movement has been ignited and it is rolling forth America! Happy Pride!
