    Default Did you attend the Pride week parade?

    So since it has become apparent that there are some super strong opinions on this forum in favor or against or not caring about the cities annual pride celebration I want to see how many people actually went to the parade this year.

    I am sure there are a million excuses why the more PC among us didn't go but I am interested in seeing how many people put their money where their mouths are so to speak about how important this event is to Calgary and Calgarians.

    Had no idea when it was, but wouldn't have gone regardless.

    I know many gay people who think the pride parade is too... well... gay.

    Yup. Now it's just full of businesses and politicians riding on the bandwagon.

    I heard most people felt it irrelevant now as they'd already showed their support by walking across the street at City Hall.

    Two big 7' tire marks this morning.

    Nope. The Beyond crowd doesn't really strike me as the kind that would be there. 56-0 confirms the view.

    Ironically, I think this is the most offensive post in the thread.

    Nope, but to be fair I consider it an event for people who live the lifestyle. I show my support in other ways, like being a witness at a friends wedding

    Yeah i dunno, i don't go to any celebratory anything unless I have a specific interest in it. Nothing against gays, just not interested in going to the festivities for it.

    Never went, but not because I don't support them. It is because I don't do crowds. Never been to stampede either, but it doesn't mean I don't think drunken wannabe cowboys don't deserve their time in the sun as well...

    Not gay because the balls don't touch.

    How come? I don't say that because I think most Beyond crowd is homophobic, but just that on a weekend most car enthusiasts would be out and about doing car related things. And because it was a long weekend, I would assume that most people would be doing family activities enjoying the final few days of summer.

    The same reason I didn't go; not because I have anything against homosexuality, but just that I would much rather be doing a 100 other things on the last summer long weekend.
