“Pride is the opposite of shame. Our pride festivals are celebrations of that same notion. For far too long our people have been condemned for who they are or who they love, but for a brief few days each year you can attend a Pride festival in your city. You can hold the hand of the person that you love without intimidation, you can embrace a friend without being jeered at or assaulted, and you can feel safe and comfortable knowing that all those around you accept you for who you are and pass no judgement upon you. Know that, for a short time, that sensation you feel is what most other Americans get to feel everyday.” – Carla Lewis
