I am not totally sure if I will be going this year, but this summer could be my first gay pride ever. Like many of you already know, I live in small town Canada, which unfortunately means little gay pride, well none really. Of course, I am proud of who I am, but there is something liberating about attending a gay pride event. Unfortunately, the drive time to the nearest city means I would only be able to attend the pride parade, not the entire week of events I would like to. Either way, if I get to go this year, I hope to have one of the best times of my life so far. The Pride Festival in Saint John is still pretty small, but the fact that there is even a festival in New Brunswick, Canada amazes me. I think a nice pride event would be the charge I need for my run down batteries. The parade isn’t until near the end of August, but I think it’s a go, so unless something comes up, I’ll be there and I’ll take lots of pictures so you can come with me.
