I am beauty & the Beard.
So for most of us in the states it is that special gay time of year, no not Halloween; its pride weekend y’all! Now while all of you are at the parties & dancing to the newest Kylie song I just want to take the time to remind you lovelies all how gratifying it is to have this moment in our lives. There was once a time that there was no such thing as a “Pride” weekend, there was I time when glitter was not raining from the streets. Sure we as a culture have so much to work on but at the same time we have come so far that; ‘that itself is something to be celebrating about! I remember when I was a child that I always was feeling this raw, dark, despairing energy on my shoulders all the time. I can’t even express how astonishing it is to see these younger kids growing up feeling like they are something more & that they will never feel such pain. I remember last year when I went to pride I saw all these families (gay and Str8) taking their kids to the festivals & I nearly cry every time seeing the liberation in there eyes. In a beautiful way it subconsciously tells them its okay to be different and that being unique is something to love about yourself. I just want all of us to really take in how incredible this pride weekend can be & to take that self happiness to the coming years! It does not matter if you are gay, straight, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or other you are magnificent! Sadly I will be missing this years pride week because of work but that still doesn’t mean that I will not carry my pride close in my heart and soul. And for all the people out here in the world today that haven’t come out or that are in that unknown place in your life; I just want to let you know that you are beautiful on the inside and out. Don’t you ever let anyone tell you differently! You all have a place in my heart & no matter what keep your freak flag high! xoxo
