We had so much fun asking the Pride Questions in person and via Facebook.com that we decided to run 5 each week out of the 20 best that we collected! If you were interviewed but haven’t seen yourself in keep looking in upcoming editions. Thanks for your patience and your pride!

 

1) Name: Theresa Martin

2) Age: 47

3) Occupation: Student

4) How do you identify? Lesbian

5) Where are you from? 2nd generation Fort Lauderdale native!

6) What does Pride mean to you?

Pride for me means that I am not afraid of my true nature and do not attempt to live a lie...too claustrophobic for closets!

 

 

 

1) Name: Nicolette

2) Occupation: Entertainer

3) How do you identify? I’m a gay man

4) Where are you from? Gulfport, MS

5) How do Pride Celebrations there differ from Pride here, in South Florida?

I have never been to one there, so I don’t know. I don’t think they have them there…grew up in Louisiana also. Nowhere I grew up were there Pride celebrations!

6) What does Pride mean to you? [With a smile] It means just being me. So, simply guess it means I can stand up and march. It means being able to live my life, how I am. People always want to make a pride statement. I appreciate and understand that, but when I think of Gay Pride it’s hard for me to think about being proud of it, it’s just something that I am.
