Suggest Your Boston Pride 2008 Theme

We were not happy about the Ask. Tell. theme and worked with a coalition of organizations to create a social justice, anti-war oriented contingent at Pride this year. Quite possibly the largest contingent in the parade. Now is our chance to voice our opinion about what Pride 2008 theme should be. Fill out their form, then let us know what you suggested in the comments section of this blog! At the very least it will be fun to see what folks come up with for ideas.

How about "We are family!" like the song goes...

We are in desperate need of unity and that unity can involve all like minded people who believe that freedom is our most valuable heirloom.

Besides, I love the energy in that song! ;)

Here was my submission:

We (all of us) are Family!

"Family" is a familiar referrence to the GLBT community, and it is a high energy song, as well as a witty way to pull people together, reminding them that we are all "...caught in an inescapable network of mutuality." ~MLK

It brings light to the fact that GLBT people have families too. The high energy song "We are family" by Sister Sledge is a old time favorite to nearly everyone. I can't think of another theme that would tie in so many ideas so well, and in such a positive fashion.

What the GLBT community needs is to embrace their straight neighbors with love, showing them we can all live together in peace. We need unity.
