  • A dedication to all the human beings marching for tolerance and equality at the Joburg Pride Parade today.

    And to their loved ones, marching with them.

    And to the bystanders, spectators, and protestors.

    My city is dirty, throbbing, restless, unforgiving, desperate, hopeful...
    today, it is also fabulous.
