I don’t think that Pride is something that should be celebrated once a year.
As much as I appreciate the strides we have made, and how important Pride month is for so many people, I still think that it should be something we celebrate all year long.
The first time I ever visited Seattle was during their amazing Pride Month. I was blown away by how inclusive it felt, as if the city itself opened its arms and gave me a big, warm hug. After that I made Seattle Pride month an annual destination, and some years later, I decided that I did not want to leave! I know that the whole country has started embracing Pride month, but here in Seattle it isn’t just a month, that is what life is like here. It’s one thing to say you support gay and lesbian rights, but Seattle just doesn’t talk the talk, it walks the walk. Combine this loving, supportive community with arguably the best cannabis being grown in the world today, and you’ve got a great place to live. I am not sure if I ever want to raise a family, but if I do it will be in Seattle, where I know we will be safe, and have access to cultural institutions. The educational system in Seattle is top of the line, from our grade schools all the way through colleges and grad schools. That is what I care about for the future, but for right now I’m all about the live music scene, and the abundance of high octane cannabis.
