Watsonville's first pride is this weekend, but it's an event decades in the making. Maria and Olga talk about the road to Pride and the road beyond, saying that putting on a Pride march is a strategy rather than a goal. We talked about the tacit 'don't ask don't tell' policy of organizing in our movements for social justice, where GLBT issues are put last, gender struggles are dismissed, and issues of race are put aside as distractions.

La primera Marcha de Orgullo pasara este fin de semana, pero es un evento en proceso por unas decadas. Maria y Olga plactican sobre el proceso de presentar Pride y el sendero despues, con conciencia que la Marcha es una estrategia mas que una meta. Hablamos sobre el silencio en los movimientos para justicia social, en que asuntos GLBT son los ultimos, la lucha de mujeres son olvidados, y cuestiones de raza son abandonados como distracciones.
