For those of you who are not watching it, you'll have missed the fact that a "Lesbian Gay Association Band" has just marched past the president's reviewing stand as part of the parade.

I am not gay (or lesbian, for that matter); however, I'm aware of the significance of what just happened.

M,

Thanks for the heads up - I skipped the parade. Watched special coverage from 10 o'clock this morning, and well, marching bands not being my thing I gave the Parade a pass.

I heard somewhere in all of the hoopla today that 1300 bands had applied to be part of the parade but that only 93 were chosen. So, the fact that a Gay group was chosen to be in the parade is significant indeed.

And just for the record, I'm not lesbian either grin
