Pridefest, Milwaukee, WI. June 10th, 2006.
The entrance to pride fest was filled with protesters yelling and screaming about how we were going to die for our sins, how god was against us. This one guy was asking people, "What it love?" And I walked up to him and I said, "Love is a deep understanding and respect between two people."
He had nothing to say.
And off to the side... I see this woman standing by herself, holding a sign. I casually walk over, assuming that she is with this nasty group of protesters... and lo & behold, this is what I find. I smiled and looked down at the ground for a moment before asking her if I could take her photo. Tears came to my eyes as I walked away.
