My most memorable pride experience was my very first pride in NYC at the age of 16!!! Ohmygoodness!!!!!!!!! I had just been kicked out of my house by my father for being lesbian. It was the first time I had seen other same sex couples kiss and hug. I felt like I walked into a magical world of belongingness. I felt proud to be who I was in the midst of that empowerment.I will never forgot that moment of acceptance and being able to hold my girlfriend’s hand walking down the street for the very first time.
