While I personally respect the idea behind pride parades, there’s a lot of discussion even among activists concerning the overall benefits of holding annual pride marchers. This weekend I stumbled across a well written article on Fridae.com , a news website “empowering gay asia”, that further explores this topic. It’s by Shinen Wong, a young man who grew up in Malaysia/Singapore before attending college in the US, then working in San Francisco, and now living in Sydney.
What are your thoughts? Do you agree with his ideas?
The Walk with Pride Project
This is a gay issue.
This is a straight issue.
This is a human rights issue.
Walk With Pride (WWP) is a project to photograph and document gay pride parades around the globe. Our aim is to promote pride, empathy, and understanding on an international level, while highlighting the similarities and differences in gay rights and gay culture around the world.
