In the eyes of a child

Of all the color and fun experienced at Dublin Pride Parade last month one thing stood out literally head and shoulders above the rest and as always it was something very simple. In the parade a young lad of ten or so was perched as happy as could be on his Uncle’s shoulders holding the banner “Gay or straight my uncle is great”

We managed to get a photograph and put it up on the www.facebook.com/NewryRainbowCommunity page from where it has travelled around the world getting shared in all directions with mostly favourable reaction but as usual some not so favourable!

Favourable ones such as “Its such a positive photo. really makes me smile. The world is a different place then when I was a child.” and “what i love about that photo is it’s simplicity – it manages to challenge so much in a handwritten card with a young boy saying to the world – “so what my uncle is gay” – that is a very powewrful image”

Of course then there is the “God love any sinner but he hates the sin and somehow you’re helping to spread it! Think about it and repent while you have time!” or “where do you stand, are you of God or are you of the world, sharing these pictures?????”

It really makes you wonder how someone can feel threatened by a beautiful pic of a young man and his nephew!
