The World Cup of Pride Parades; World Pride was held this year in the big party city of Toronto, Canada, coinciding nicely with my recent move! A friend of mine who is a member of the fabulous group; The High 5 (a professional Cannabis marketing and promotions team) asked me if I wanted to join them as they marched in the parade. Having never participated in a march before I thought it would be a great experience, I made the most of the opportunity and flew head first into the celebrations and had some serious unapologetic fun.
I love the attitude that everyone has during Pride, no one feels the need to discriminate and because of this people feel free to be whoever the hell they want to with no fear of resentment or prejudice from others. It makes you wonder if only we could think like this and have that mentality all the time just how bright and colourful the world would be. No more wars over religion, race, creed, colour or sexual preference. No more hate. Just straight up appreciation for each and every individual and all the bits that make them so unique. Call me a dreamer, but history has proven that over time what starts out as an idea from one person can turn into the perspective of an entire civilisation. Thus the world is no longer flat.
Now sit back and enjoy the rainbow :)
