I Am What I Am

Continuing with the gay pride thing I found a video of I Am What I Am on YouTube. I have always liked this song and it really speaks volumes for the way a lot of gay people feel. I decided to include this version with John Barrowman in this post - this is the first time I have heard him sing the song and I really like it.

I also took the time today to see when Santa Fe will be celebrating pride. This year they will be having Pride on the Railyard Plaza. There are quite a few activities going on starting on Saturday, June 20th and going through Sunday, June 28th. They have also changed the route for the parade. The parade will be on Saturday, June 27th and will start on Don Gaspar and continue down Paseo de Peralta to the railyard. Click on the picture to view a map. I attended Pride in Santa Fe when I first moved here but that was quite a few years ago. I probably won't attend all of the events but I will definitely attend some and will be at the railyard on June 27th. I am interested in seeing the "Gay Art Show". They haven't announced the location yet but I am keeping my eyes posted.

I have been looking at other blogs and reading about gay pride. One of the blogs is planning on posting a gay related quote a day. You can find them at That's So Gay. Or you can look at the top of my sidebar - I decided to make a list of them there. I also noticed that Idle Eyes and A Dormy is also blogging about gay pride. I don't know why all of a sudden I am interested in following and blogging about gay pride but I have a sneaking suspision that it has a lot to do with marriage equaility and the lack of justice in California. Anyway, I plan to blog a little throughout the month if you care to read more.
