Continuing the 30 Days of Pride Challenge. #30DaysOfPride

10. What’s the most influential LGBTQ event you’ve attended?
I honestly don't have much experience going to LGBTQ events.  The local pride fest, for the last two years (and tomorrow, for what it's worth) are the closest thing I could probably mention, I suppose.  I don't feel like I have a lot to say about it though.  It's fun.  I enjoy myself every year.  The parade is a blast to watch, and I can pick up some cool pride swag.  Melissa Ethridge made a surprise appearance one time.  I don't feel like I'm describing "influential" much though.  More "enjoyable".

Nothing left a lasting impact for me.  I don't think that's not a bad thing though.  It's fun and feels safe, and something we can all share together regardless of one's labels.  I dunno; I like that.  That's all I really want anyway. ^_^

People o_o
We have local pride events here, especially in November. Yet I only know that recently because probably:
> I'm totally shy.
> I'm also unupdated >_>
> I have no idea how to approach them or contact them! D:

People are amazing and this is awesome ^ ^

I've never attended one and don't really plan on it since I'm not a very social person.

I used to go to a transgender support group before I moved.  I wouldn't call it influential but it was nice to be somewhere that I knew no one would judge me.

Never realy gone to anything else that might be called an "event"

Being in college in the midwest has been surprisingly helpful for lgbt events (especially since i go to a small college in iowa). I've gone to mblgtacc the last couple of years but the 2015 one was the most memorable with laverne cox gave a speech. It was really moving

I haven't had the opportunity to any lbgtq events. I mostly have been sheltered in my house. Aside from school and doctors/counselors/dentists/haircuts I have only left my home 5 times in 3 months. And Its not that I don't want to go places, I just have nobody to take me. Between a mom who works from 8am to 12am, a schizophrenic brother who is to paranoid about being attacked because of me to be seen with me, and another brother who only has a training permit, I'm kinda sol on going places
