Re: “North Charleston hosts the Lowcountry's first gay pride event

This is to Chattycat: I find it insulting to state: "no one cares about a 16 year old straight kid allying with the gays". First of all, that "kid" is 18. Second of all, that "kid" has worked his REAR END off for 6 months on the board of the Pride Festival organizing all the amazing talent you will have the pleasure of seeing and hearing on Saturday, despite working a full time job, playing in a touring band, A Fragile Tomorrow( which, by the way, just came off of a tour opening for the Indigo Girls, who happen to care about an 18 year old kid, his 18 year old brother, their 15 year old brother and a 23 year old bass player, all part of A Fragile Tomorrow "allying with the gays") and being a college student. He does this volunteer work because he was raised, alongside his brothers, to care about ALL human beings and to stand up for what he believes is right. And THAT is what he was doing. I'm sure they could have also quoted all the 18 year old kids whose parents raised them to protest "the gays" and then you would have complained about that. And with good cause. That 18 year old kid you speak of has the ability to think for himself, be proud of his beliefs and always speak his mind. He and his brothers are forward thinkers who support their fellow citizens of all shapes and sizes, religions and sexual orientations. I would think the paper did a good job giving a quote from an average 18 year old kid, and I would think that his voice should be heard, as much as some of the other people you mentioned. Why? Because he represents the youth of our world, and there are many like him. By the way, I am his mother. I am also the mother of 3/4 of the band, and they will be playing proudly on Saturday, to represent the community of young people who believe in rights for all their fellow human beings. And I am sure they will rock your socks off. And when you watch them, and I hope you will, remember that they are there to have THEIR voices heard. And Even Amy and Emily seem to think what they have to say matters.
