Today in town two young women walked past me, smiling, their arms around each other. It made me smile too.

And next weekend the city will be full of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and simply enchanted folk celebrating who they are and who they love.

I adore Pride. It feels like home, to be surrounded by drag queens in butterfly wings and hunky men with oiled torsos, by strong, free women walking hand in hand, by mothers whose pride in their gay children shines in their eyes, by children raised to accept that love is love regardless of gender.
