The Castro's rainbow flag always fills me with Pride...

If you live in San Francisco then you're probably lucky enough to see The Castro's giant Pride flag most, if not every day. Whenever I'm in San Francisco I always like to make the pilgrimage to the rainbow-coloured flag as it reminds me of how proud I am to be gay.

As a gay community we always think we've come so far (and we have, don't get me wrong), but living in more open-mided and permissive cities like L.A., San Francisco and New York it's easy to forget that not everyone in the world is able to fly a flag like this, celebrate their individuality or express themselves the way they desire.

There are still so many homophobic organisations, politicians like Mitt Romney, and even fast-food companies like Chick-fil-a, who are openly and proudly anti-gay, that it's even more important that we continue to celebrate and show our pride visibly.

So here's to more equality and more big gay flags like this all across America and around the world.

It's an election year in the U.S., so this year do the world a favour and vote Obama, vote gay...
