|Liz workin' that hoop!|
As someone who strongly believes in equal rights for all and the importance of supporting the LGBTQQI community, it felt so incredible to do my small part in showing solidarity with them by being part of the parade. Yes, hula hooping down Crown St didn't do anything life changing for the community, but it's not about that. It's about showing support. By being in this parade, I felt like I was screaming at the top of my lungs, I am here because I support you and your community. Your rights are important! Because they are. And while the parade was one big, silly party, it didn't start out as that. It started with a much smaller group of people who decided to make a statement that said we are here and we want to be heard.
As they should.
