Hello stitchers! It’s almost Pride week. There is something that will make this year’s Columbus Pride Festival greater than ever
that’s right, good old Uncle George is going to be the grand marshal of this year’s Pride Parade!
You don’t have to be Takei in order to have fun at Pride. Columbus is a pretty Takei friendly city, and I couldn’t imagine why anyone would live here if they were homophobic (not saying that they don’t, or why they would be in the first place). When I was in college I lived in The Short North, or “The Short” as they cool kids say. It has traditionally been the most rainbow covered area of the city. Therefore I started going to the Pride Parade when I moved there. To tell you the truth, my first pride parade was an excursion originally planned to keep my friend’s mom busy while she visited. We had a great time, said mom got a blow up sun from the male stripper float and I got a sunburn and broke my toe. It was very memorable.
In honor of this most festive of local occasions I have a hand full of Pride & Equality charts. There is a little bit of something for everyone :)
Have a safe and happy Pride!
