Gay Pride - Orlando - October 12, 2008

Orlando, as a city, has the 9th highest percentage of gays and lesbians in the United States. Of course, Orlando is a much smaller city than some of the others that have been on here (Vancouver, Tel Aviv, Chicago, Toronto, etc.) but it is still very important. It's always coordinated to be during the week of "National Coming Out Day" in October.

This year, the theme centers around voting NO on the proposed Amendment 2 on the ballot in November. Amendment 2 would essentially ban same-sex marriage. Being that same-sex marriage is already illegal there is no point in it being on the ballot, and, if amended in the Florida consitution would be the first time that discrimination has been written into our constitution since segregation. Early polls have already shown that 55% of Floridians say they will vote yes.







































Me and my friends:

Yeah I'm in the black Tiger Army shirt in 2 of the pics.

Parliament House is still around, sitll raking in the dough. It's up to like $10US per drink there now, but at least they've fixed it up a bit.

You are a very good looking man!
$10 US for a drink is a total ripoff for that place. I guess they have no competition. Shame....

People really enjoy themselves on these parades. Though I am straight I still like this festive mood. Life is too short to live a boring life!
