felis_ultharus: The Pardoner from the Canterbury Tales (Default)
Marched in the Pride parade again. Haven't missed marching in about a decade, I think, though it terrifies me being at the centre of such a large crowd. I hold on tightly to my banner and don't let go, and it's okay.

But it's still important. And it's still something deeply important to me.

Yesterday, I tabled for the New Democratic Party at community day. We were visited by Jack Layton (leader of the party) and Olivia Chow (our immigration critic). I'd met them before, but they actually hung out awhile. I helped Olivia put up banners.

It was tiring - I've had next to no sleep this week. But it was nice to be part of it again, and tired as I am, I am sad to see it gone so fast.

Also, the rain held off until the parade was over, so it was a rainless parade again. Clearly Mother Nature is on our side :)
