Attending Trans Pride,
Northampton, Mass., June 2008
June is Pride month. There will be events everywhere to acknowledge pride. (In my neck of the woods alone, I count more than 60 events!)

Pride is “a high or inordinate opinion of one’s own dignity, importance, merit, or superiority, whether as cherished in the mind or as displayed in bearing, conduct, etc.” (Source:

Do I have pride? Am I proud of who I am?

When I started down this path, I did not have pride. Rather, I had guilt, that is, “a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, wrong, etc., whether real or imagined.” (Source: I was not proud of what I was doing. So much so that I hid what I was doing.

Thank Goddess for Halloween! It gave me an excuse to come out of hiding and show the world what I was doing. But I still was not proud of what I was doing and I was back in the closet when Halloween was over.

Eventually, I realized that I was misinformed and my guilt slowly transitioned to pride. So much so that today, I am out of the closet and completely open about what I am doing... and proud of it.

Now I just have to decide which Pride event to attend. There are so many to choose from!

And so it goes.

    Love your picture and the Femulator one also. Nice to see pretty ladies everwhere.


  3. I attended my first PRIDE events last October. In Las Vegas, they hold the PRIDE event in October because June can be mighty warm. The PRIDE parade was held in downtown Las Vegas on a Friday night and the PRIDE festival was Saturday. I attended the parade with my ex-wife and two of our kids and the festival with the kids. After the parade, the four of us went to a nearby IHOP for dinner. If I remember correctly, none of us wore pants; skirts or dresses only.
