On Father's Day this year my daughter and I attended the Portland Pride Parade together. It was great to
see all of the supportive people and companies out there celebrating inclusion and everyone's
individual right to be who they are.
There was however a group of protesters with a bullhorn telling everyone that they were going to Hell
forever forever forever forever. Fortunately the crowd was loud enough that you really couldn't hear
them very well. Some of the vehicles in the parade (and all of the people) contributed noise to
drown them out as they rounded the corner, much to the delight of the crowd. As I saw company after
company parade by in support I provided running commentary as if I were the protester disconcerted by seeing
company after company roll by in support.
