A4A : Why A Gay Parade?

So yesterday’s post about LA Pride got few comments like ” Why the fuck do we need a parade? We can all marry in LA!” or “Why do gays have a parade in 2014, straights don’t have a parade?”.

Ok let’s do some education 101 here.

Stonewall

The parade has become a vehicle to showcase LGBT pride, a celebration, a manifestation of the “out-and-proud” mantra to put the lights on the LGBT community. But the history of the parade comes from less celebratory roots tied more towards political activism and protests.

On June 28, 1969, a riot broke out at the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in downtown Manhattan. Police had been known to raid the club from time to time, but on that night, the patrons fought back. A protest broke out, with police and community members clashing through the night, and for the rest of the week.

One of the many benefits of living in Southern California, especially during pride month is the number of options you have for letting your pride shine. 

I’m in LA every couple weeks but WEHO is not the draw it used to be for me so going to LA Pride is an excuse for me to check out the old neighborhood and chat with a few old friends.   

We get to the parade route early so we can watch them set up and practice their routines.  We get to our favorite watering hole which is situated a few blocks from the start of the parade.  Not as many people at the start so it’s still manageable to see what’s going on.  LA Pride does not disappoint.

Speak Out : Uprising Of Love – For Sochi LGBT

At this unique moment in history, when we are seeing such rapid progress in the fight for equality in the West, we cannot be blinded to appalling crimes against humanity elsewhere. Today in Russia, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people are facing harassment, arrest and violence under a set of horrific new laws. For their sake, we must come together and start an uprising of love.

Models Colby Melvin and Brandon Brown ask for your help in this new video promoting global Pride Houses. A Pride House is a place for LGBT athletes, fans, and friends to meet and enjoy international sporting events. At the previous two Olympics, there was a Pride House in the host country. This year, Russia has forbidden the establishment of a Pride House in Sochi. In response, restaurants, bars, and clubs across the country are becoming Pride Houses in solidarity with LGBT Russians and donating $1 of every drink sold between 9pm and midnight on the night of the Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony to the Russia Freedom Fund.

Find participating venues here.

You can also download Uprising Of Love on iTunes, a song written and sang by Melissa Etheridge for the event. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Russia Freedom Fund!

Check out the video and listen to a remix of the amazing song after the jump!
