NYC Pride 2021: The Fight Continues — Pictures & Videos Comments (0)

Pride was physically tumultuous for me in 2019, since I'd spent like six months with no exercise while nursing my sick pooch back to health; I'll never forget the feat of endurance it was to see Madonna perform then.

Pride in 2020 was virtually nonexistent.

IMG_6787 nyc gay pride boy cultureEveryone was in good cheer.

This year, because NYC had not fully reopened when plans were laid, Pride was a mish-mash of classic and cautious, crowded and sparse, big and small — and I must say I was shocked just how often it landed on classic, crowded and BIG.

It was also punishingly humid out — we are entering a days-long heat wave — making this year's theme of The Fight Continues feel more like The Struggle Is Real.

IMG_6913 gay pride 2021 boycultureKids were the backbone of Pride this year.

On my way to the kickoff presser, I spied a family of hicks stumbling out of Port Authority, the teen son in a camo TRUMP cap, and then noticed a series of anti-vaxxer and anti-mask graffiti messages. I tried not to let this put me in the wrong mood. Most of New York state is vaxxed and I imagine way past 70% of NYC is by now, so the real nuts are in the minority, but it was still jarring to be reminded that fascism and populism masquerading as junk science are here to stay.

McConnell Disavows, Schumer Decries, Insurrection Ahead Of Biden's Certification Comments (0)

Shocker, but Senate Minority Leader (feels good to say that) Mitch McConnell has stood up to Trump and his enablers, saying:

We can not simply declare ourselves a national board of elections on steroids.

He is forcefully condemning the coup attempt which — by the way — has resulted in throngs of aggressive protesters attempting to storm the U.S. Capitol with all our biggest elected officials sitting inside of it, including VP Mike Pence, who said earlier, in a statement:

It is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not.

Incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer gave a wonderfully fiery speech in response, trashing the insurrectionists attempting to steal this election:
