I think that they're a bit unnecessary and that sometimes it just seems like you're trying too hard to prove that you're ok with who you are. I don't understand why people just can't be. It's like being Catholic in my country is pretty much the worst thing on earth right now because we're going through a Royal Commission surrounding child sex abuse in the Church. I'm not marching down the streets so that everyone can see that I'm ok with being part of a group which is seen as undesirable in society. I'm a Catholic and I'm ok with that so I just go about my business being who I am.

B was the closest to correct answer for me. More accurately I'm mostly indifferent to it. Not much of an event goer in general. I don't know many gay people. The ones I do know probably wouldn't go either because they're busy with other things as well. We all got bills to pay.
I do believe in their right to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression. As well as a belief that they are entitled to the pursuit of happiness. I think it's also good for anyone to exercise that right where they see fit. But beyond that it's just not something on my radar.
I'm a christian - I don't agree with the act. To a point, I get the parades, and I'm ok with that from a secular viewpoint - there are parades and celebrations for all kinds of things.
You want to go have a somber vigil/parade because a crazy nut committed an act of terrorism? Lovely. I can appreciate that. To a point, I might get behind that on some level. Terrorism (terrorism isn't micro aggressions, but like people beheading gays and throwing them off buildings and stuff) is horrible on any level.
Many of the parades get raunchy, though, and I DEFINITELY disapprove of that element. There's a very hedonistic element to a lot of these parades. Whether straight, gay, somewhere in the middle, etc I don't care for that element of some parades and events out there, no matter who'd be doing it. If it was regular looking people, marching, dancing in the streets (but keeping it pretty clean), I might argue the case more for Pride parades. But with the level of debauchery encouraged, even what little I've seen by watching the news, I can't support any of that at all.
