This weekend was Pride, in other words you could pay eight bucks to go meet a lot of peole and have a lot of queer fun. I didn't get to go (had a Spanish assignment I had to work on) but sooo many of my friends did (bisexuals, gays, asexuals, people who had lesbian moms or gay dads, I thought it was cool they all went) and I've been hearing about it and wishing I could have gone So, what's Pride like in your area? The number one thing everyone's talking about here were the trashcans full of condoms -everywhere-. By the food, trashcans of condoms, by the entertainment, trashcans of condoms, by the booths, trashcans of condoms, by the entrance, trashcans of condoms. And even better, little packets of lube to go with. We all think that's utterly cool so tell me, what's the best thing about Pride? Whats the worst? Does your area even have one??

Pride is a pretty big deal in NYC. There's the huge pride parade in late June. It's very corporate and commercialized. I personally can't stand it- I went once and was just apalled at all the advertizing directed toward the queer community. It might as well have been a huge Bud commercial. Yick. I much prefer the Dyke March. Completely illegal(we don't get a permit), just lots and lots of queer women and their allies taking over 5th avenue. It's really quite beautiful.

Toronto Gay Pride is gigantic. I haven't been able to go yet, but I'll probably sneak out this year.

Well, I'm going with two friends to Mardi Gras in London, whihc I guess is a similar idea. Haven't been before (since I haven't been out before...), but it sounds really cool, and loads of big name bands are there, with loads of other stuff happening as well.
(One of the friends I'm going with is straight - probably one of the only straight girls who could go to a gay club and pull a straight guy!)
