YAY LA Pride March!! Sunday the 11th of June 2017 with tens of thousands of people walk from Hollywood to West Hollywood. I didn’t arrive until about 11 am, it ran from 8 am until 1 pm, so I caught the last part of the march.
The vibe from the day felt strange… So many police, I don’t know if this was normal or because of the scare they had last year. I had the plan to go last year but waking up to the new about the Orlando shooting and some crazed man driving up to LA with a car full of guns and ammo coming for people at pride I didn’t feel comfortable attending last year. Thankfully nothing happened last year, but I just didn’t feel safe, but this year I wasn’t going to let anyone scare me away.
I actually made my soul happy to see all the different walks of life at the March, it didn’t make your age, race, gender or religion everyone was there and we were all there for the right reasons. I came across some very interning charters, and homemade signs, there were a lot of fun and anger point to President Trump. People walking around in full drag to individuals in the underwear! All in all, it was a happy and loving day.
