SAN DIEGO – The 2012 San Diego LGBT Pride weekend will go down in history … for making history.
Let’s count the ways:
1. The first time American troops have been allowed to march in their military uniforms at a gay parade, a momentous step toward full equality and another milestone set after the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
2. The first time a gay sailor has proposed marriage to his boyfriend in the middle of the Pride Parade, temporarily halting the procession as fellow service members stopped to embrace the joyous occasion.
