Thanks, Rysky

Coming up on the local pride parade here in Cincinnati! I'm really looking forward to it, but lately I've been antsy and nervous too.

Stuff and Things:

After graduating from high school most of my friends moved away and I lost contact with a lot of people, and in the absence of others I started focusing more on myself as an individual and trying to figure out who I am / want to be. Many deep, introspective internal monologues later I still haven't really figured everything out, but more recently I've come to the conclusion that I'm bisexual. I just spent like 15 minutes typing, deleting, and rewriting qualifiers like "I'm not positive" or "Well, probably" and "I dunno if that's the best label" after that last sentence, if that gives you any idea of the sort of confused stage I'm in right now. I've only really told three or four people about it but I think my parents are starting to catch on.

The hard part is that I know they'd accept me. My brother and sister already came out a while ago and are still loved and cherished (they even chewed out the pastor at their old church for anti-gay messages before moving to a new one), so I'm not really worried about that. For some reason I still don't feel ready to be open about it with them, though. A couple weeks ago when the topic came up my dad asked if I was still straight and I said "If I wasn't, would you want to know?" but he didn't respond so I left it there. Then just a couple nights ago at dinner I mentioned that I was leading our club on campus and he asked why I was in charge / interested in the first place. It's making me really nervous and I'm not sure what to do about it.

I wish that people would give more credence to the 'exploring' in the phrase "exploring my sexuality". So often people's brains seem to substitute 'announcing' instead.

For all my GLBTQ friends, and for my own glorious daughter in honor of PRIDE celebrations everywhere.

Wave your flags up high
(parody of American Pie by Don McLean, lyrics by Hmm)

♫ My, my, wave your flags up high
Wearing leather all together though it’s almost July
And them good ole boys wearing dresses so fly
Singin’ now we raise our hearts to the sky
Now we raise our hearts to the sky

A little time ago
I can still remember how
We started to march in style
And I knew if we had our chance
We could sing and laugh and dance
And everyone could join us for a while

Sometimes folks take convincin’
So we just keep on livin’
With bad news on the doorstep
We greet ‘em with even more pep
We’ve got a love to proud to hide
With rainbow colors all allied
Something touched me deep inside
The day we marched in Pride

My, my, wave your flags up high
Wearing leather all together though it’s almost July
And them good ole boys wearing dresses so fly
Singin’ now we raise our hearts to the sky
Now we raise our hearts to the sky

Did you write the book of love
And do you wave your flags above
And sometimes steal the show?
Do you love the human race
From here on earth to outer space
And can you teach me your special glow?

Well, I don’t care if you’re a her or him
'Cause we’re all lit up from within
We’ll wear our dancing shoes
Sing like we’ve got nothing to lose

I was a lonely kid but now I’m not
When together we’re all we got
Don’t throw away our shot
Be who you are inside
We started singin’

My, my, wave your flags up high
Wearing leather all together though it’s almost July
And them good ole boys wearing dresses so fly
Singin’ now we raise our hearts to the sky
Now we raise our hearts to the sky ♫

Mercifully for those celebrating in Seattle, the temp will only be about 65º F when the parade starts, and isn't meant to get radically higher. Those in warmer climates, I salute your sartorial dedication!

In Minneapolis the Pride Festival always seems to be on a day where the temperatures soar to 90 degrees and up, and the whole city is insanely hot. I wear sleeveless purple dresses and use my rainbow umbrella as a sun shade, and I'm still hot. I don't know how the folks in leather do it!

I'm hoping this year we're blessed with cooler weather for Pride.

Hmm


well, with luck, here we won't have rain, but it might be very hot too... of course, being demophobic, I won't attend the parade, even though it's in my neighborhood...

Looks like Cincinnati is gonna have rain during our parade. I think I've got a rainbow umbrella somewhere though...

I was at a fan-writing thing in Pittsburgh almost two weeks ago, and there's been serious talk of moving it *off* of Pride weekend as it turns into a hot steaming mess (and not in a good way) as we try to rush to get the group camp we stay at cleaned up and shut down for inspection by the rangers.

This year I had a *brief* chance to go, but ended up running into the PFS/SFS VC for the area and hung around for a bit -- we'd traded Boons via mail so it wasn't like complete strangers.

Unfortunately, it was also very hot and humid, and the Pride Games they were intending to have were canceled due to impending thunderstorms -- and it was a Very Good Thing.

At about 430-5 the skies just opened up and didn't stop for about four or five hours, along with thunder, lightning, and flooding.

I rode Amtrak home, and the train had a branch the size of my arm caught in the front 'grill' from downed trees along the route when it pulled into the Pittsburgh station. We were darn lucky that it was only forty minutes late due to trackbed washout concerns.

Next year the hope is to have the writing thing the following week, and renting some modern cabins for a week to allow things like attending Pride and whatnot, but we'll see how it goes.

Going to Pride this weekend! I haven't been in a couple years, so I'm looking forward to it. The weather looks like it'll be nice too.


*Accepts Rysky hugs* Got done looking for my Mother's Aunt and Uncle. Both died a couple of years ago. ;_; Nobody told us.

This is because Pittsburgh's Pride week just happened to coincide with Pittsburgh's Arts Festival, AKA Rain Fest. I'm serious. Every year for the past several years, the Arts Festival has been plagued with bad weather. Almost like a curse.


I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the Pirates, John.

Maybe the Pirates not winning is part of the curse.

I can't go to Pride this year. My new job has me working. That's ok. I need to make money.

The VA did have a Pride celebration though and that was fun. One of the old-timers was whining that "in my day we kicked them gays out like they should have been." The associate director was talking to us and he overheard it. I love his response. "Sir, unlike when you were serving, you are under no obligation to show up for formation anymore. You can either enjoy your free ice cream or go about your business."

That response was perfect!

While there was rain today at Cincinnati it ended before we started walking so it didn't really interfere. And this year's celebration was absolutely packed, too!

Sort of on the down track of life but it's just my depression, so I know it's not actually true. Still hard to shove the crap out of the way.

But at least when July 7th comes along I can enjoy gaming.

That and sleeping in my own bed.

Hey there Bear!

A virtual fist-bump for Thomas. I admire your ability to recognize that it's your depression speaking and isn't really true. Wish I had that magic power sometimes.

Hugs back atcha Risky

Y'know, I cancelled my subscription for financial and depression issues.

Having something like that plus possibly more on Ganzi may sway me...

Have a great morning, afternoon, evening!

It's going to hit 90 degrees here. Never mind about blizzards, temps of 65 - 70 are good enough for me.

For the record, I don't have magic powers. I do have levels in paladin. So that some times works.

Down side is when the gas station guy give me back 3.50 in change after I gave him 32.00...and I spent 31.50...and I couldn't drive off with a measely 3 dollars!!!

Planar Adventures is awesome and so are the new ganzi features and options. I'm biased obviously as the one ganzi both named and illustrated therein. :D

I'm thrilled with the artwork of her (I actually gave an art reference for her, and except for some tweaks to her outfit, not a whole lot changed). :D

She's kinda the poster-child of more overtly protean-touched ganzi (and there's several other more specific lineages for ganzi in Planar Adventures, each with their own particular associated variant abilities). Sort of a blend of imentesh and keketar protean, and other random almost old-school Planescape tiefling stuff thrown in because cHa0s heck yeah.

Also, more on-topic for this thread, if you pay attention to her flavor text, she's trans (her transition being accomplished by way of Galisemni's spooky protean artifact the Lethe Wall which is heavily alluded to being linked to the Chorus of Malignant Symmetry). And additionally, while it's not in print, non-canonically trust me that she's gay. :)
