How to Create your own Gay Pride Tour- When ever I’ve gone to a Gay Pride parade or participated in one, it always does the job. It fills me up with Pride and clearly demonstrates how far we’ve come.
No more closets
For you younger ones, I can remember when attending a Gay Pride event was like going to a neighborhood block party, max 100 people were in attendance. Not to mention all the name calling and real fear that came with attending a gay public event. But, we did attend! So, every year, it got bigger and bigger. As we broke through, social morays evolved and Gay Pride festivities became Pride festivities, to include everyone. We all have the right to be Out and Proud, for who we all are. No more closets.
Now that Pride festivities take place, nearly, all over the world. We can choose to participate where ever you are in the world. Either in your own town, city, Country or heck even inter-continental. So there are 2 different ways to approach planning for your Tour.
The first reasoning would be a pioneering one. To encourage, the younger pride celebrations. To show your solidarity with them, ensuring that they continue to grow. Support their gay establishments and participate in their Pride. All the while, having lots of fun. Which in turn strengthens it for all. (Please keep in mind that these celebrations can be met with hostilities. So bring your old school badge of courage along) Here are a few exciting Gay Pride Travel suggestions:
Celebrate Gay Pride
The alternative approach would be to attend more established Pride events. You still have all the benefits from the first approach and the same thought process goes into it. Odds are, you won’t be with much resistance but remember, when traveling, you should always keep your street smarts about you. Here are a few exciting Gay Pride Travel suggestions:
The Grand Tour
Now, think big! You can blend, the “grand tour” with Pride celebrations or go “American Continental”. Even better you can do the “Down Under” tour. If you plan it accordingly and have the time/money, you can have it all.
