Yip. I just wrote about Straight Pride today as a matter of fact, and touched on the Nazi harassment of of Pride in Detroit, where I lived until recently. I could pass for straight if I wanted to. I’m not “naturally” very fem. But you know what? I’d rather not. I’d rather celebrate diversity and work for acceptance than try to cover up under a supposed privilege that not everyone enjoys.
