Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

1/4 Million attend Gay Pride in Huston

I wonder how the Texas Conservatives liked this:

More than a quarter of a million people were expected for Saturday’s parade. The parade route took place down Westheimer in the Montrose area. The large crowds were welcome news not just for supporters, but for area businesses as well.

"I think it's great," said Gary Baumann with the Houston GLBT Chamber of Commerce. "It's incredible that people come out to see what we’re all about. It promotes will for our community. We're no longer the Montrose area. We're around the city of Houston."

This is the 27th year the parade has been held in Houston and some reports say it could be the largest ever. Even before the parade started, thousands of people lined the streets. Some came out of support...others out of curiosity.
