The pride that dare not speak its name

An ad for Macy’s today in the Boston Globe touted as part of Pride Week an appearance by a lesbian couple who had competed on “Top Chef.” Wow, I thought, it’s great that Macy’s is supporting Gay Pride Week, but it’s too bad they were too gutless to mention the word “gay.”

But, upon checking the url the ad gave, I found that the sponsoring organization, Boston Pride, also just refers to it as “Pride Week.” You have to check the About page to find out that it’s about gay pride.

Sort of ironic to be proud of something you seem ashamed to talk about.
