Seattle Pride is an expression of our Constitutional rights

Editor:
I was rather surprised, as a civil libertarian, that your lengthy article on the Seattle Pride controversy did not contain a single mention of 'free speech,' or 'the First Amendment.' Pride parades and other celebrations began - and continue - as manifestations of our Constitutional rights to express ourselves and to petition our governments. While the events are managed by particular organizations, they certainly should never assume an ability to limit the expression of members of our community. We have never delegated such a power to them!

(Yes, the Supreme Court did allow the Boston Irish to keep a GBLT group from participating in a St. Paddy's parade, but we are talking about a celebration of gay rebellion, not a Catholic saint!)

So it isn't a matter of corporate sponsorship or not, or the interpretation of contract wording. It is about our inherent rights as recognized in the Constitutions of our Nation and State.
