Pride, a perspective from Dorothy’s BFF

For only the second time in thirteen years, I missed the pride parade.  Missed the festival and dyke march.  Missed the flag-waving and feeling of community amidst the sequined queens and glittery signs that have heralded the hot season since 1998, or, as I think of it, my summer of coming out.  The first time I missed the festivities, five years ago, I was eight months pregnant and in no mood to battle throngs of jubilant, Molson-swilling revelers in the sweltering heat.

This year, my father-in-law is dying, languishing in home hospice.  How and what is there to celebrate?
