The Portland Pride parade is now featuring toddlers. A few of the child-centric “floats” included Kids 4 Pride, Portland Public Schools, The Snuggle Mobile, and Transactive Gender Center, which also featured a pickup truck with a “Super Heros For Super Kids” banner and adorned with super heros such as Spiderman, Robin, and The Hulk.
The Transactive Gender Center website describes itself as an organization that “provides a holistic range of services and expertise to empower transgender and gender diverse children, youth and their families in living healthy lives, free of discrimination.”
The Portland Public Schools van is, of course, taxpayer provided, and most likely features a driver who was on the clock. No word yet if participating in the parade counts towards the teachers’ credits.
