Pride Month: Reasons to be Proud

It’s Pride Month and I’ve been so busy with my shit that I haven’t really gotten a chance to post anything about Pride or make some sort of gesture, even online, about being proud.

I’m super excited about Pride March, though, which is going to be on at the end of the month, still in the same venue as last year and I’m so stoked for that. I can’t wait to march again and I haven’t been asked to be a part of the program so that means I can just come and enjoy myself. I can come in a little later and stay a lot longer than last time.

But I do have a special reason to be proud because I was tagged on a post in Facebook today and it shocked me and made me blush and made me feel so good.

Let me first show you this:

I wasn’t tagged on this post. I don’t know who Ross Manicad is but apparently he is doing artwork on LGBTQIA icons on his Facebook feed daily. He has already done RuPaul and Madonna and Tim Gunn and Vice Ganda and Boy Abunda and Paolo Ballesteros.

Today, I was tagged by someone I didn’t know on one of his posts.

How can I not be proud now? How can I not feel good right now? This is just… I don’t know… I’M NOT CRYING YOU ARE CRYING!!!

I just feel so good right now.

Happy Pride month, everyone. Be proud of who you are.
