Launch of 2010 Pride Parade Calendar

Have you ever wondered what a pride parade in Japan looks like, or what about a march in S. Africa, Lithuania, the USA, Greece, Mexico, India, or any of the other countries around the globe?

These questions got me thinking, and with the help of WordPress, YouTube, and many many many hours online and on Excel, I’ve been able to develop a one of a kind 2010 pride parade calendar.  Searchable by country and by month, this huge database is special  in that it provides embedded video clips of pride parades for each country.  While some 2010 dates have not yet been confirmed by their pride organizations, these parades are marked with a “*” and dates are generated based on 2009 data.  If you have any comments, or would like to submit a link – make sure to email us: wwpproject@yahoo.com

2010 Pride Parade Calendar of LGBT Gay March Events around the Globe

Besides providing a well-organized list of pride parades to visitors, this website was additionally created to support pride-related advertisers.  All ad-revenue and donations from this site will directly contribute toward supporting the project’s travel costs.   We will also be developing a pride store, in which links to unique pride gear from businesses around the globe will be provided.

Okay, that’s enough of me describing it, why don’t you visit the website for yourself and tell us your feedback …

Rainbow Flag, and Gilbert Baker interview.

At each pride march, rainbow flags are proudly carried, but what are the origins?

Gilber Baker was the creator of the original pride flag.  Living in San Francisco, he was skilled at sewing, and friends with Harvey Milk and others in the Gay Rights activists, who often called on him to create banners for the movement.

Baker designed, and hand-dyed with the help of 30 or so others, the first rainbow flags which appeared at the San Francisco pride parade on June 25, 1978.  This first flags had eight stripes, hot pink for sexuality, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, turquoise for magic/art, indigo for serenity/harmony, and violet for spirit.

During 1978 as the pride flag became increasingly popular, hot pink was dropped due to the lack of availability of the color.  In 1979 the flag was again modified by dropping the turquoise stripe, so that it would have an even number of stripes.  The rainbow flag is now a proud symbol of the gay rights movement, and is not only found on flags, but t-shirt, bags, and even bottles of Absolute.

Below is an interview with Gilbert Baker where he talks more about the flag’s creation.

‘Pride 2009′ — Music of a Movement

Watch this ~ it’s an excellent video created in 2009 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Stonewall.  It shows pictures and video clips of pride over the decades, and goes with the song ‘Pride 2009.’  Similar to the style of, “We didn’t start the fire,” it’s a quick song, and you’ll probably need to see the lyrics to know exactly what they are saying, but check it out for yourself …!

The ‘Pride 2009′ song is from the album: Pride at 40: The Music of a Movement

Taipei Pride ’09 YouTube

Following through with my 2010 resolution to update the WWP blog everyday, I just put together a playlist of some of the best YouTube videos of the ’09 Taipei Pride March.  The ‘Taiwan Pride 2009’ video looks nice, but I think my favorite is the upbeat ‘Love Out Loud’ clip.

If you’ve looked through our Taiwan parade photos, many of the people in these videos might look very familiar! How many do you recognize? ;)

Hah, and for all those who’ve enjoyed the ‘Where’s Waldo’ books, let me know if you catch a glimpse of Chad in these videos, I bet he’s there somewhere …
