This photo, taken at the Anime Expo 2010 by a Teen active in her High School's GSA, sums up the sentiment nicely:
Proud to be GAY.(and hey, it even rhymes!)
Proud to be part of the USA!
Thanks for the photo, Geena, and for sending it to me so I could share it with my readers!
Enjoy the holiday, and for those of you outside the USA, imagine how YOUR country's flags could be "rainbow-ized!"
