It took me a while to figure out, but I was able to download and edit the video that Trish and Callie’s kids took of our performance at the Bennington Pride Parade last Sunday.
We’re dancing to Gogol Bordello’s “Start Wearing Purple” and you can hear the audience start to clap halfway through the song as Trish, in her orange and yellow skirt and turban, emerges like a goddess.
We found a space in the corner of The Unitarian Church, that was the right size for our “stage”. We danced among the tables and chairs, books, and bulletin board.
I loved being able to participate in the Pride Parade and lend my support in this way.
Carol left this message on my blog which says it so well…..”As a lesbian, being seen and showing up for our community touches my heart. We all contribute to the love of life quilt and the interconnectedness of all beings.”

We will be dancing again this Wednesday, July 5th at 7:30 pm at the McCullough Library in North Bennington Vermont.
