It’s Pride Week here in Buffalo, NY, a celebration of the LGBT community. I’ll be walking in the Pride Parade this Sunday with Relativity BellyDance along with the Dance Days of Buffalo float. (We walked in the parade last year and learned the hard way that 1 bottle of water is not enough, and dancing for the entire 2 mile stretch is a BAD idea. We are more prepared this year!) President Obama also declared the entire month of June to be LGBT Pride Month!
Here’s a great post from the WordPress Blog last year that they wrote shortly after the SCOTUS ruling legalizing same-sex marriage throughout the US. In the post, they link to various LGBT bloggers and posts.
Who are some of your favorite LGBT authors or characters? My favorites include the author Clive Barker, and the characters Professor Lyall and Biffy (oh how I love them!) from The Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger.
