There’s a nuanced and productive way to talk about kink displays at pride and then there’s this post.
For better or for worse Pride is now big enough, long enough and corporate enough such that there can be events to suit all tastes and ranges. I understand the desire of parents to limit what their children are exposed to in age appropriate manner. Also, I do believe that parades, communities, and events have a right to set standards for what takes place in public.
But that doesn’t mean that anybody should feel the need to hide or feel ashamed about the kinks they may feel or experience. The best way to accommodate the most amount of people is to have an open and non-judgmental conversation about it. Participants could and should be informed going in and parents should be able to instruct their kids about kink in a positive non judgmental way.
After all, the whole point of pride is celebrate the marginalized.
