Pride Festival 2022 ??
« on: June 21, 2022, 04:25:21 pm »
Is anyone attending or has attended one of the 2022 Pride Festivals? If so, how was it?

I wasn't going to as it's not for me and COVID is rampant again, however, my daughter asked me to take her to the Parade for Dublinpride this upcoming Saturday.

So I am going, funnily enough, the last time I attended was in 2012 also with my daughter who was only 2'5 years old at the time.

Hope y'all have a good time!!!  ;D


The Charlotte NC Pride parade isn't until August and the Columbia SC parade isn't until Oct. (Columbia SC weather is horrible in June and Aug. It's like living in a hot sweaty armpit with no breeze, so that's why their pride is so late in the year). Larry and I usually catch the lynx rail just across the state line and ride in -  that way I get to see if my HIV prevention/treatment billboards are still up.  :D

But with Covid messing up the last couple of summers, I don't know if we'll feel up to going this year. I mean the corporate shilling for Pride is really starting to work my last nerve anyway. Slapping a rainbow on your product isn't going to make me forget your Republican supporting donations.

Personally, I would LOOOOVE to go to Pride; but sadly, my husband and most of my friends are stick-in-the-muds, If it was up to me, I'd go to pride -- and go out dancing a lot more than I do now (which is never). I love doing "fun" things; but unfortunately at 60 (but feeling 40ish?), it seems I have a lot more "fun" left in me than a lot of people I know. LOL You know it's all about the attitude. If I'm living as long as Nana till 103, I'm just barely middle-aged now. LOL

Have a great time. I'm off to pull on my Speedos (budgie smugglers ROFL) and help my 40-yr old best friends set up for the pool party at their house. The old, tired, un-tanned people will show up later.  ;D ;D

We were standing all alone
You were leaning in to speak to me
Acting like a mover shaker
Dancing to Madonna then you kissed me
And I think about it all the time

Having a great time. We ended up walking in the parade and Avril had a great time.

I'll post more pictures later tonight, just having a break in the pub at the moment.

Well enjoy and hopefully you get some time before the untanned herd arrives.

As long as you enjoyed yourself, that's what matters.
