San Francisco is the best city in America. I love it here. Besides the debaucherous street festivals, marijuana stores, liberal clothing rules, thriving art scene, ever evolving music industry, and incredible landscape, it is the heart of revolution and revival for the United States.
I feel that I have been apart of history as Gavin Newsome pushed the evolution of our societal and cultural norms. Finally, gay marriage is legal, and it's about time. Although I am not gay, I can easily relate to the elation that the gay community must have experienced when the Supreme Court of California voted in favor of gay marriage. To this day it is beyond me as to how someone today could disagree that the suppression of gay people is different from the racial inequalities that took place in our cities during the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s.
I went out yesterday to experience the gay parade, and I witnessed and felt the tremendous energy exuberated by the crowd. A true sense of pride filled the air, and everyone was relieved to know that America is soon to be forever changed.
I know this post may sound a little over the top coming from some straight guy, but hey, that's the way I feel.
