Stand up for LGBT youth

The theme for the 41st annual San Francisco Pride parade and festival is “Stand up for LGBT Youth.” My warmest best wishes to Dan Savage and everyone who has helped with the “It Gets Better Project.” As they say on their website, “Many LGBT youth can’t picture what their lives might be like as openly gay adults. They can’t imagine a future for themselves. So let’s show them what our lives are like, let’s show them what the future may hold in store for them.” This is my 34th parade in San Francisco. I marched with a handful of Midwestern folks in Chicago when I was a kid. I survived. We’ve got so much to celebrate. So much left to do. Happy Pride everyone!
