The GayHudson.com Parade Sub-Committee made the decision for me.
We're NOT marching in Flag Day.
After talks and discussions, the reason, honestly? Fear.
....sigh...that's it folks.
It's not so much that anything will happen on Flag Day, but there is fear that a week or two later, something will happen, someone will get hurt.
Maybe it's too soon. Maybe I had too much enthusiasm. But, when it boils down to it, there's a real fear of being gay-bashed in this town. I feel it more in Hudson than in the twenty years I've been in Manhattan.
The weather has been getting warmer, and people are out in the street yelling at each other more, starting fights.
Is it worth it?
Well, you tell me what you think...
I apologize for letting anyone down.
