Sitting out this one out

PrideFest edition — granted, my reason isn’t nearly as well crafted.

People are still dying, by suicide, murder, and AIDS. Young people are still being harassed and disowned by their families, friends, and religious congregations. Our older population is facing a new discrimination, having to go back into the closet as they enter retirement communities and nursing homes, fearing for their safety. We still have one of the highest homeless and unemployment rates in the nation. It is not time to buy stuff. It is still time to fight.
