THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE.
Yesterday was the Dublin LGBT Pride Parade 2010.
And what better way for me to celebrate it, than make a shirt for my friend? :D I told my dad it was for me and he was all *awkward*.
The word "amazing" does not fall under how much I enjoyed yesterday.. And I'm not even a raging lesbian! Everyone was so happy and carefree and I couldn't help but think, this is probably where these people must feel the most at ease with themselves.
One of my favourite things about yesterday was seeing the crowds of people cheering us on and waving flags and all, it felt so good that they accepted everyone and that there was so many of them, you know? It was just plain amazing. Another thing I liked was the amount of children that were there, because I just thought how great it was that people were bringing their kids to it, and how accepting they were. There was one moment where I looked out into the crowd, and I saw a woman with a kid in a buggy (about two/two and a half years old) and the kid was clapping along like crazy, and I laughed and pointed her out to my friend.. And as I was pointing her out, I caught eyes with the mother.. And I don't know, but it was one of those moments. She smiled back, and I couldn't help but think, she doesn't know I'm straight and was there to support my friends, but for all she knew, I AM gay.. And she didn't mind.
Things have changed. They really have.
My friend (Catzy) and I. I only realised now how weird we both look, but I'm not uploading another :)
