As a gay man, I’ve spent much of my life hearing people tell me how I should have sex (or why the sex I had is wrong, or why having too much sex made me a “slut”). I don’t want that to be the case anymore — I want people to feel the freedom to have whatever type of legal and consensual sex they want to have — as often as they want to!
On Oct. 15, 2015, SDR invites the community to don their purple attire and meet at the John Wear plaque for a time of refection, to celebrate those memories at a Spirit Day Parade immediately after, and finish at a resource reception, where you can find out how to activate your activism in one of San Diego’s LGBTQ social justice efforts.
