Providence Pride!

June 17th was Providence’s PRIDE FEST! It was the first Pride festival I’ve ever attended! I had such an amazing experience and unforgettable memories. There were many different and unique looks and fashion styles and tons of different organizations celebrating and supporting the LGBT community. The vibes were great; the environment was nice and friendly (good for taking photos); and there was good music, dancing, lip syncing, face painting, and you can’t forget about the delicious food and drinks!

“There is a God that loves us”

If I’ve had to pick one memory as my favorite memory from Pride Fest, it would have to be the dancing and lip-syncing portion. I loved seeing everyone enjoying themselves and getting along. There was no hate, judgement, or negativity, just smiles and laughter.

I felt like a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race watching this performance above. She was giving me life! I loved seeing others doing what they lovedto do. The crowd was awesome. I clapped and cheered along, even if some of the performers weren’t that great (no shade).

Grandpa came out to play and gave no care about what anyone thought. He was solo and all.

I did meet some incredible people and took photos with those who I thought were interesting.

I didn’t get a chance to take too many photos because I was having the time of my life speaking to others and coming together as one. With all of the hate and negativity in the world, it was wonderful knowing that not everyone is hateful. To be honest, I was a little afraid to attend  Pride Fest because it’s no secret that the LGBTQ community is being targeted. I considered not going and waiting until next year, but who knows what will happen by then. I can’t live my life in fear and you shouldn’t either. No matter who doesn’t support you or the thing you do, you keep doing it for YOURSELF! Not everyone is going to like you or understand everything you do. Stay true to yourself, surround yourself around positive people, and love yourself. Just like RuPaul would say ” If you don’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love someone else?”
