my friends introducing me to people
I’m gonna be in NYC next week so if anyone wants to hang out or grab an awkward cup of coffee hit me up
I feel sometimes like I’m the only one who doesn’t like Pridefest because it makes me feel so uncomfortable with my body and appearance. I know it’s good to have pride in who you are ad that opening this up to the greater community is important in advancing acceptance and understanding, but I feel like the message gets lost in floats with guys in speedos and people waking around in little-to-no clothing. And when I go I feel like I’m expected to have rock-hard abs and a beautifully tanned body, or else I look undesirable and out of place; this seems like the opposite of what Pride should be about.
Any thoughts/feelings about this?
