We are going to be hearing a lot about this guy in the next few days, and that’s awesome. Here’s the statement made by Boston Pride:
“Boston Pride has formally invited Jason Collins to be a Marshal in the 2013 Boston Pride Parade, held June 8th. Boston Pride is proud that our annual celebration helped to inspire Jason Collins to make his groundbreaking decision to come out. We’re also very pleased that he has announced he’ll be marching in this year’s Parade – we’re looking forward to it!”
We don’t know yet if he’s accepted, but somehow I think we can bet on it!
Its that first week of March, I thought I would take time and give a couple of reasons why I am excited about March:
1. The NCAA Basketball Tournaments start! These Gents play for the love of the game and I love this game! ( with that said I used to play sports as well as a cheerleader in HS and college. )
2. Spring is coming! The birdies are gonna chirp and the flowers bloom and this confounded snow will melt!
3. St. Patty’s day- Green Beer and Black n’ Tans. Best part …my Creme de Menthe cupcakes. Yumm-o and a Lime Gimmlet Martini
4. Mustache and Mullets !? Priceless =)
UPDATE: Authorization for the Pride march revoked, activists plan to proceed anyway.
As crazy as it sounds, authorities in St. Petersburg have approved a LGBT civil rights protest march and rally on July 7 at the Polyustrovo Park. Sounds too good to be true right? The catch is only 1,000 protesters can attend, and as RIA Novosti reports, Polyustrovo Park is far from the city center.
So despite the law banning “propaganda of homosexuality and pedophilia among minors,” the LGBT civil rights march will go forward. While it’s a great moment to be recognized by the government, we’ll have to wait and see how this all plays out.
Stay tuned, I’ll be posting updates as soon as we know more.
The East London Gay Pride has been cancelled a march scheduled for April 2nd because of allegations that organizer Raymond Berry has ties with the English Defense League.
For those who don’t know, the ELD are a group of people that oppose and protest against the spread of Islam in the UK, claiming they don’t want Muslim extremism in their country. Continue reading
