I kind of wonder when the expiry date on Pride will be... I mean, if more equality laws get passed then many countries/states will be majority pro-gay.

Will we need Pride then?
Will we just pick one day for the year?

I suppose one advantage of Pride is that it brings in a lot of money, and awareness. Could be a great fund raiser for countries where LBGT rights are being chipped away even further.
I get the feeling pride parades and events will be around for a long time to come, even if it's just as a celebration of all that has been accomplished, and a reminder that we should never judge people by the things they were born with. After all, we do still have such things as Black History Month.

And, of course, legal equality does not automatically mean social equality. Just think about how many racist people there are still in the world, even in countries where equal rights have long been established for people of all races and religions.
