Tonight is the kickoff party for Pride Winston-Salem, the LGBTQ festival that celebrates not only that community but really the entire WSNC community. The acceptance of everyone how they are, for who they are and because we’re all one race, the human race. That’s cliche but it’s true. I love my friends in that community. I hang around with people that are squarely in the community and others that are like-minded of me that support people being with whoever they love. It’s a festival of hope and of peace and of acceptance. The kickoff gala is going to be grand but the real show is tomorrow.
The Pride festival will be happening from 10am – 5:30pm and it is building community. It’s not just a festival, it’s also a parade and food truck rodeo! The parade will start along Fourth Street. Come to watch it and then come to the festival afterward. Why am I pushing it so hard? Well, firstly because I believe in it and I have a load of fun if nothing else just people watching. But, the drag queens and street performers and the grand time everyone has. But, also, because I’m one of the emcees for the event. I’ll be passing between the stages, mostly the main and community stage.
So, come have some fun, eat great food, watch the peeps, and see me up on stage running my mouth.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
