The next generation of voters and policy-influencers

Youthful Pridegoers, San Francisco, CA.

Another in an ongoing trickle of images from San Francisco’s 43 Annual LGBT Pride Parade on Sunday, June 30th.  I always ask people before I take a picture that includes their face, and I always always ask young people. What I loved about the gal who’s addressing the camera here, is the pride (sorry: no other word) in her face as she brandished her sign.

Look at it, would you? And give a good long bit of thought to the amount of time she spent embellishing each and every word of it, not to mention the stars and faces and hearts that surround the words. Maybe also give some thought to what she may have been thinking as she rendered it. She is at the epicenter of that–of our–we.

    That is really, truly amazing. It has a lot of meaning. I don’t think that people against homosexuality (or the people who have homophobia) realize that: whether these kids were adopted or not, a lot of children waiting to be adopted simply want a loving home and a parent (or two parents) to love them and take care of them — they want a family of their own.
