Happy PRIDE โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™ย 

Dear Oslo, today you were beautiful…

On June 15th, 2022, I was in San Francisco, CA, when Oslo’s original Pride parade was canceled due to the terror attack at an LGBTQ+ bar.

That day I felt a feeling of fear…however, an even stronger feeling was the power of love, and I, therefore, took the Bart to SF, Deloris park, to celebrate with friends.

And today, we were finally able to celebrate in Oslo, Norway.

Seeing SO many young individuals who were there with their friends and/or parents, teachers walking around with t-shirts that stated “proud teacher,” a vast amount of beautiful colors…made me walk around with a huge smile!

Sitting here, reflecting on my feelings around what today means and what it has taken to get here, I have to be honest that I do not know, but I continue to seek knowledge, and understanding and ask questions…

I can feel that today hit me hard, as I have loved ones who identify with the community, and I can’t begin to imagine their feelings around the day, the month, the past years, decades…

To be honest, my chest hurts as I have seen the pain that our society can cause to individuals because of who they love. It is not right. LOVE IS LOVE.

As long as you are not in the position that the discussion is revolved around, you don’t have the experience or knowledge to speak ANY negativity towards this position.

It is tough enough to grow up in today’s society. Please, if you want to be a part of the discussion, do your research, read, and build a valid understanding of what coming out in a society that allows no space or acceptance truly feels like…that is at least what I am seeking to do.

The BOLDNESS, HONESTY towards self and others, WILLINGNESS to share, COURAGE to stand strong alone, BEAUTY to be oneself….. I AM SO PROUD OF EVERYONE WHO CHOOSES TO WALK IN THEIR OWN SHOES!!!!!!

RAINBOW colors are BEAUTIFUL

LOVE YOU ALL,
