May All Who Have Been Marginalized Find Refuge In The Arms of Love

Last Year’s Gay Pride Parade

The Castro Last June
The Castro Last June

At Church today people kept asking me if I was okay because I kept sniffing. I thought I just had a cold until I started putting this post together when the tears started flowing . I usually post pictures of  silliness every Sunday for  Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge, I can’t do that today in face of the 50+ lives lost in Florida. I am offering photos from last Year’s Pride Parade that may be funny but have a deeper message.

Also, At Church ( U U Church of Berkeley ) we were ask to spend a moment sending thoughts and prayers for Courage to all who are marginalize. Afterwards a gay man sang Elton John’s Can You Feel The Love Tonight?

Listening to it soothe my soul a little bit hope it does the same for you.

  1. Such a horrible tragedy in Florida–hateful. Back in the early 90’s I worked home care for UCSF–I was on the IV team in the Castro. It’s a wonder I didn’t rear-end anyone or wipe out a pedestrian during the parade as I made my way to patients. Thoughts and prayers to all affected by the shooting and for that matter all who are still victims of such discrimination.


    1. Thank you Thank you for sharing your experience of the Castro. The Band pic was taken by my straight Daughter who lives in the Castro. They chose to live there because it’s a really safe place to live. Or was.
      Praying it stays that way.
