100 Words- July 1, 2015- Pride Parade 3

One event during the Chicago Pride Parade that went under reported, was the die-in staged by a group attempting to draw attention to the special problems of gay people of color. The protesters formed a circle around a few bodies that lay in the street and chanted “Black Lives Matter”, and “Stonewall was a fucking riot!”, both chants being something with which I wholeheartedly agree. Unfortunately, I was doing a radio interview at the time, and thus only heard of it when I returned to my parade viewing site.

I do need to write a full article on my Pride experience.


About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
