Re: “Halifax Pride stands at a crossroads

As A Gay man of 53, with citizenship in the US and CA., I have seen the transformation of the whole of pride become increasingly more mainstream to include all those who identify as alternative. But, in the same breath, become political in areas which remove it from its original inception of pride and power of people who fall out of the binary order of cis lifestyles. Somehow, the GL has been diluted and lost in a maelstrom of acronymic inclusivity. I was actively involved in the beginning of Baltimore's GLCCB (Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore as well as HERO and the collaboration between the Baltimore gays and the DC gays in putting together the Pride festivals from the NY model. In addition I have been involved with COMPASS in West Palm Beach, and in all of those organizations, which had spread out from NY to San Fransisco. I have not once witnessed the dysfunction that is apparently rampant in the highly diluted mission of the Halifax Pride Organization. The only thing that I see from the reports making the media trail, is that, the pride that I attended 25 yrs. ago in Halifax that had an astounding 200 people in attendance has become nothing more that a paycheck for a few who want to reap off of those early Gay pioneers of Stonewall. Marketing, is great for revenue, but then, that wasn't what Pride was created for.
