|This beautiful location is a downtown Baton Rouge building of brick and glass made even more beautiful by the bright sunshine and hundreds of people inside. It's also the location of my Saturday scoot adventure.
People of all ages, colors and sizes were there, from the little ones with their painted, giggling faces to older couples finding a quiet spot on a remote bench to talk. Faces would light up when friends saw each other across the venue. Lots of hugs and smiles were exchanged, the room was vibrating with energy.
It was like being at a family reunion -- if you could choose your family.
Welcome to my first PRIDE event. Made possible by my TravelScoot and the dedicated folks at Baton Rouge PrideFest.
One of the highlights of my day, I made sure I was there in time to hear the New Orleans Gay Mens Chorus.
Being on my TravelScoot gave me the best seat in the house -- the one near an air conditioner vent!
The pianist made me reminisce about Kerry, my best friend from high school, who I hadn't seen in years.
Fifteen seconds later I heard him calling my name! :-)
