I am not super into the whole gay or original LGB pride events, going to the marches-I was more interested in going to bars and dance clubs with other bisexual men I was boyfriends with at the time, dancing, and getting drunk, or basically I would go to local LGB/LGBT pride events and I do not travel to LGB/LGBT pride events in other countries or far away cities like my bisexual friend does.
I do not like how these events are now super corporate, super tame-yes I know LGBT people bring their young children to such events but I think children/teens should be banned and I want to see twinks stripping, leathersex fetishists, men and women into the sex kinks of pretending to be a human dog or horse, etc. If you want a family friendly event for LGBT pride for people to bring their children to people who are LGBT and who have children can make an event like this where there are no pornstars, stripping twinks, etc.
I also do not like how super mainstream being LGB/LGBT is in films, TV, books, etc. to where it is just pandering for $€£ from LGB/LGBT people, 'allies', etc. Or how everyone and their mum wants to join the LGBTXYZ collective.
^^ Yeah, there seems to be a bit of conflict in between older generations and now where there are younger kids and its a family picnic kinda thing. The BLM thing with brown/white and black in the lego set is new and would have been frowned on in the past let me tell you wow! I didn't mean to offend anyone by what I said its just how things were back then. And there was a lot of ownership of slurs and things, and in all honesty I was more of a tourist and a casual, if at all. I suppose I was close to the subculture as anyone for our area. But yeah my views are probably very very tame in comparison to some people who were legitimately within those subcultures. And certainly the language used would have made sailors blush.
I think it's healthy that it's not all about extremity and sexual fetishism anymore. The fact that it is normalized enough to bring children to such an event is a good thing. Maybe a less fun event, but that pales in comparison to the people who the event is for experiencing a much greater level of societal acceptance.
