Thank you for bearing with nearly two months of exclusively LGBTQIA content, Gentle Reader. I hope your Pride season was just stellar, and that the local celebrations didn’t disappoint.
So! Going back to early June, then, our Pride Posts were these:
Post the Forty-Ninth: Madame DeLyte’s Guide to Pride – wherein we looked at a general overview of what Pride means now, and what it has historically meant.
Post the Fiftieth: Pride Etiquette – a guide to how one ought to behave at such functions.
Post the Fifty-First: On Coming Out was full of things to consider before taking that leap.
Post the Fifty-Second: LGBTQIA Community Resources was, um, full of community resources.
Post the Fifty-Third: Songs with Queer Themes, 2015 was the third installment in a series – an annual search for the best explicitly queer songs.
Post the Fifty-Fourth: To Thine Own Self, and All That Rot was about not apologizing for who you are, even if you don’t fit into conventional boxes. Especially then.
Post the Fifty-Fifth: In Which We Go Over The Rainbow was a guide to Pride flags you’ll see.
Post the Fifty-Sixth: In Which We Pass is an anecdote about assimilation. Or, rather, avoiding it.
Post the Fifty-Seventh: Identity Issues was about being allowed to explore one’s identity without committing. It’s okay to be unsure.
Post the Fifty-Eighth: In Which Madame DeLyte Joins Grindr is a humorous romp wherein a dignified old lady joins a gay “dating” app.
Finally, Post the Sixty-Second: Out In The Park is essentially a Tacoma Pride anecdote and an impromptu photo-shoot.
Happy Pride, Gentle Readers, I hope that my humble offerings have been hilarious and helpful for you this year. Get ready to return to les aventures on Thursday!
