Danica Does Pride

It was a great pleasure to have Danica accompany us to both Pride events — the raising of the flag on Friday and the Lip Sync event on Saturday.

She wore the pride ring that Sue made for her and gladly waved the flag. She also got a nice face-painting.

After I took the above pictures, she orchestrated this photo — both the composition and, later, the editing.

And then, she insisted on posting it on my Flickr site. Someone would have to be very special for me to allow that. And in her description, she wrote this: "So basically, we were at our local farmer's market for the first annual PRIDE festival in our town! It's great knowing that all individuals are accepted in our small town, no matter what they identify as or who they love. We're all people here!"

Gotta love that girl.

More Danica photos, mostly of her dancing at the end of the performances.

If anyone wants to see more (and why would you really?), I posted a big photo album on FB with the above photos and many more, including many crowd shots. (I trust that the link will work. I've never done it this way before.)

It is great to see children participate in Pride events, AC. Danica is growing up so quickly. Precious years for all of you.

Danica looks like a lovely girl, full of fun - and I'm glad your town has decided to have a Pride festival. A nice counter balance to the increasing grey miserable intolerance both across the border and here in England. Bravo!!!!

A very impressive young lady. It's great to see how the spirit of love and tolerance and justice just can't be quenched, despite these trying times.

Hear hear!

Waiting for the day it is no longer necessary to have Prides, although in some places that might have to wait a long time yet!

She is precious.

Yiur granddaughter is wise beyond her years, John. It would be nice if more people would show understanding for the preferences and differences of other human beings. Danica is definitely on a great path forward.
You obviously saw the Roadside posts before I recheduled it for next week. We are currentky out of state for a family wedding and I inadvertentky scheduled it for this week, then corrected the post date.
