Pride 2017: We Are Family


If you live in San Francisco, June 24 is Pride Day.

I will be out all weekend loving life and taking pictures.

I dedicate this video to the men and women of the American Civil
Rights Movements
.

We are all religions, races and nationalities. We are gay, straight and transgender.

We will never return to our closets.

We are everywhere and we will never give up.

I chose “We are Family” by Sister Sledge because it’s a happy and
hopeful song.

I first made this video for Pride Month 2016.

We are always stronger together!

Now get up everybody and sing!

 

If I turned around every time somebody called me a faggot, I’d be walking backward – and I don’t want to walk backward.”

  1. It’s the perfect song, Rob. Have a great time. Looking forward to the pictures. (I was California dreamin’ for about 20 years, San Francisco especially, before the cost of housing finally made me give up.) Hugs.

    1. Family is joyous, indeed. But to me I heard hope in San Francisco… A little wistful yes, but the song was the sound of a hopeful dream to a young girl, wanting escape. Both are great. Now go have fun. πŸ™‚

    1. I was glad to make the video.

      I’m so tired of the 24/7 conservatism that we get from our MSM.

      It’s all Trumpy and his racist gang of thugs all the time.

      This morning I read a report on yahoo regarding the ‘backlash’ against gay rights.

      Who cares?

      Screw the bigots and their need to control our bodies.

      If they don’t want to live in an open democracy they should move to Russia where homophobia is policy.

      There are good things happening in the U.S. despite the throwbacks who need scapegoats to distract us from from decades of failed economic policies!

      In many ways Gay Liberation achieved part its goal. Pride Day is a celebration of life and it is for everyone…

      Thanks for the comment; it is a happy song. Please share it.

    1. Yes! The song still conveys the spirit of progress that gave birth to all of the major Civil Rights Movements of the 60’s and 70’s.

      The Right can demonize us, starve us, drive us from our homes, destroy our public school system and use their media to belittle our vision of a genuinely just World.

      But they can’t destroy our spirit. We will prevail.
