After the Parade
The Chicago celebration was a tremendous event. Because of the Supreme Court ‘s Same-sex marriage ruling, the turnout was estimated at a million people, with whole families, including toddlers, very visible in the crowd. Personal opinion, I thought the parade a more modest display in its overt sexuality than it has been in years past- more tuned to middle-class sensibilities. I’m not sure if that is a good thing. It was not the middle-class gay who began the revolution that gave us the results we were celebrating. It’s important that our history not be an unrecognizable white-wash.
