There are many ways to celebrate Pride.
I went to strange one Friday night. It was at the New Britain Museum of American Art, on the New Britain Pride Facebook event page they had that a Pride was going to be held that night. A friend posted that he was going and I mentioned to a friend and she was interested in going to it.
Boy was it a conservative crowd, you would think that they never saw a trans person before [that’s a joke, they most likely haven’t], one guy almost walked into a wall staring at me.
There was what looked like maybe a half dozen gay couples there, who fit right in with the crowd. We sat at a table outside on the patio and there was what looked like a lesbian couple sitting on the other side of the patio. They we sitting there looking around like “what are we doing here?” and we felt the same way.
So there was no Pride flags, no Pride fancy napkins or tablecloths, nothing to indicate that it was LGBT… zero, zilch, zip, nil, nought, nothing.
I am sure that they put in a lot of work for Pride but they are not conveying the information to the public. I see on their Facebook that there were speeches made about Pride but there was nothing at the event listing an agenda.
