gay pride

I took this photo at the Toronto Pride Parade. I am straight, not gay, but I went with a friend from church to support gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people’s rights. I don’t really care how you argue this theologically or politically, all I know is that exclusion, hostility and violence toward people because they are in same sex relationships is wrong (and I know both gay and lesbian people who have lost been assaulted because of being in same sex relationships and a gay friend who actually lost his job!). That is simply not right! So I go to Pride Day as an ally to show support. Consider going too and if you want to find out more about the issue read this Amnesty International book with a forward written by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Anyway back to the shot - enjoy the photo! And you gota love those abs!
