“Don’t be afraid to be authentic,
show up in the world as you truly are.
Be as you mean to be,
but be light with it.
laugh at it,
walk everywhere with it.
Be in the world but not OF it.”
– Jay Woodman
This says it better than I can at the moment. Although the event has come and gone, I’m still feeling thankful and appreciative (and yes, proud!) of the way the community supported Hilo’s 1st ever Pride festival. I’m humbled and touched by all who put judgement and differences aside to celebrate each other in the spirit of love.
