I’m posting this as a memory aid, because it’s becoming difficult to interpret the Pride Parade acronym for participants. LGBTTIQQ2SA stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transexual, Interested, Queer, Questioning, 2-Spirited and Allies.
Heterosexual Politicians were early supporters (except for one mayor), so H and a P should probably be added. The A for Allies would cover them, but it is needed for the Asexuals who are feeling left out.
NoJetsTO just emailed me saying they would be marching to express Pride in our Waterfront. N, J, T, O and perhaps W for Waterfront. So basically, it’s becoming a parade for anybody who is proud of anything.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that, as the Seinfeld bit went.
The funny thing is, some groups are banned from the parade.
