Went to the Gay Pride Chicago parade I had a good time, however, no usable pictures because every time I tried to take a picture I got flashed! No, not by just the ladies but guys as well. LOL, Therefore I had a good time but had to decide quickly that I was not going to keeping taking pictures of private parts that would mostly get me in trouble online if I posted them. I am still going through them to see if my friend Sarah who went with me took any good ones, but I doubt it because they were flashing her too! HA!
Although it was a good time, it still put across the point of celebrating another community within our equally diverse area. That is still dealing with their fight for rights, that will still show up and be determined to be seen and heard. But in the meanwhile, will still have a good time no matter what. Like I said hopefully, I can get some usable pictures off the phone, but if not I will just wait for next year.
PS: It was great to be in my old stomping grounds again, Lakeview, I sorely miss it. I think I would give up this one bedroom shitty “vintage” apartment in Oak Park, IL for a studio any day! I miss the shops (I will not lie), the nightlife and most importantly the overwhelming diversity and acceptance of individuals from all walks of life in the area. Something Oak Park, IL as liberal as they want to say they are, can never be.
