Dear Editor, While it is in fresh on our minds, I would like to congratulate our South Florida LGBTQ-plus community for a great Stonewall Pride Parade & Street Festival.
To the organizers at the Wilton Manors Entertainment group-thank you for an excellent day. The weather was pretty perfect too. It was wonderful to see so many participants in the parade, whether government or private, non-profit or for profit, so many people want to be a part of our community.
It was heartwarming.
And I guess, for me, to see SO MANY PEOPLE representing every aspect of our lives, gender, race and age come out and celebrate the best of "us" made the day truly special.
Last year, I rode on our float at Miss Tiffany Arieagus's feet and could only hear her adoring applause....and wolf whistles. This year I walked next to our float and was able to hear the shouts of "Thank You" and "We love you" directed at the SunServe Staff.
It was pretty special.
Thank you again, and I am looking forward to next year.
