We had a good time! I brought a friend and she enjoyed it. We served water to the marchers. I shared with my friend that people are celebrating who they are. I saw several large transgender flags; something I hadn't seen in previous parades.
A good question, Ellen. Gets back to my point of being a historian regarding Stonwall Riot of '69. Trans people were shut out of leadership positions because we didn't look 'normal'. Well, we ARE normal and we're everywhere. Sadly, even the gay community sometimes needs to be reminded of this.
This is very, very sad. What I have seen is many cowardly school administrators who, when controversy knocks at their door, either downplay it or ignore it. My sympathies to Ms. Ross' family and friends and the few supportive co-workers.
