These rainbow sidewalks were unveiled by Mayor Murray himself last week. They're scattered across Capitol Hill as a way of acknowledging and celebrating this historically LGBTQ*-friendly neighborhood. I love this long-lasting proof of Pride!
Brendan let me paint his nails rainbow and we matched! It was a very fun excursion for all three of us (me, him, and Luxe).
I regret having spent so little time in my life actively supporting the LGBTQ* community. Since high school and especially since coming to Seattle, I've been working to understand the movements and struggles the LGBTQ* communities across the world undergo. This knowledge is helping me understand my role as an Ally. It's important to me that I don't tread on the toes of anyone inherently involved in the movement. I want to use my voice and privilege as a loudspeaker, not as a separate voice speaking my own opinions or beliefs. While I'm working on learning and getting more involved in the LGBTQ* movement, I'm enjoying the festivities along the way.
