I would never find pride an embarassment. The people in the parade are just being themselves and there is nothing wrong with that. I feel that pride shows that there are a huge mix of types of gay people. My opinion completely changed of gay people once I attended my first pride. I use to think that all gay people were feminin, whores, and immoral. That's how I was raised even though I was gay. After attending my first pride, I realized that that wasn't the case, my confidence level and self worth sky rocketted. You should never find anyone in pride to be an embarrassment because you are judging which is wrong regardless of what the person is doing or looks like. If you are going to judge those in the parade or at pride, then it makes it ok people to judge gay people regardless of who they are. Everyone just needs to learn to not judge. As long as the person is happy with themselves, then they should be free to do what they want. The world would be a better place if people would just care about themselves instead of caring what other people should be.
