Day 17: HAPPY PRIDE FROM RUSSIA!!!

Sunday, June 25th

Today is PRIDE in my beloved New York City 💙💛💚❤️💜🌈💙

I am very lucky to come from a country that for the most part allows me to have some freedoms. As we get closer to Moscow, the excitement of being in Russia is beginning to fade because the reality is that while it’s beautiful here it is not safe for me to be me in the full expression of who I am. I can’t wear my rainbow gear. My computer has to be covered and my lesbian stickers hidden. I’m feeling more alert, more guarded and am walking with a lot more caution.

Hiding who we are and #pride go hand in hand. Coming out for me was personal and political. We don’t need to be ashamed of who we are. #outandproud
