People have asked me why I can’t be “just another normal guy.” You know, do normal guy stuff. Like date girls, for example. Why do I have to be “so gay”?

Since the beginning Pride has been over-the-top and hypersexual, because it has to be. The homophobes denying us our rights are saying, to no uncertain terms, that we shouldn’t be (as consenting adults) allowed to have sex with who we choose. If we were to white-wash Pride into being only something that those very conservatives would be comfortable with, then we would be doing the entire LGBT movement a disservice.
