Solidarity: Disability Pride Parades
The city of Chicago has been holding a disability pride parade for seven years, and San Jose recently followed suit; they held a parade celebrating the Americans with Disabilities Act last weekend. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any photos from that parade online, but I did find other photos of disability pride events, so I thought we’d spend today having a little virtual parade!
There are two things in this world I adore more than almost all others: Hanging out with fellow people with disabilities, and parades. Having the two in one spot sounds absolutely super.
This is Momo Dance, an integrated dance group from Calgary, performing at a disability pride event in 2006.
Disabled seniors at the same event.
Another disability pride event in Calgary, this time in 2009.

Finally, these women are in the Brighton Gay Pride Parade; ’cause disability pride can show up anywhere! I adore their matching cowboy hats.
