LA Pride kicks off this weekend, celebrating the diveristy of the LGBT community in the region. This year's event include a number of big name entertainers like Estelle, CeCe Penniston, Macy Gray and Margaret Cho.
Driving forth an assimilationist agenda would eradicate that our gift and our struggle are that we are a diverse community. And our diversity as a LGBTQ community should not be diluted, but rather our diversity should teach us more about its complexity, and by extension teach society at-large.
Robin McGehee is calling on community members to help her organization bring pride celebrations across the country back to their political activism roots, while maintaining the important social aspect of the events.
