  1. On one hand this is great. On the other it is sad this has to be mentioned.
    We should just always respect each other...

  2. I love this. And I do agree with Iris, that it is too bad it needs to mentioned. But we have to start someplace I guess. Hope you didn't get any snow yesterday. We had snow all day and maybe got 2 inches.

  3. Awesome. Why do they flaunt their orientation? It's not so fashionable with us yet :)

    1. It's not so much flaunting as showing its part of who they are. Gay people have been marginalized, discriminated against. I think this just shows they have arrived and are like everyone else

    1. You need to move to MA. Our politics are better. 😺

  5. I might agree with Erika and Iris, but I think it needs to be told. This should be a PROUD PRIDE moment.
