I finally had the opportunity on Sunday to attend my first ever Pride Parade. Before it even started, I was so overwhelmed with emotion. It was amazing to see so many people from different walks of life there to support a parade dedicated to people being proud of who they are. I was with my friend Teresa and her little nephew Lyndon. We were right at the start of the parade route, so once it was done, we just piled in behind and followed it to MacDonald Park where the Pride Festival and Market was set up. I had so much fun throughout the festivities and am very PROUD to live in a city like Victoria with so much acceptance and appreciation for the LGBT community.
