Magic Mountain Gay Pride Night

Heres a question for all my lesbian sisters and gay brethren (or our supporters as well). I was thinking of visiting Los Angeles this autumn, and was curious to see if anyone knew whether or not Six Flags Magic Mountain is still having their Gay Pride Party? I had heard rumors that it was cancelled but I wasnt sure if any locals knew for certain?? It was usually in late September and from bout 7:00PM-1:00AM. Just curious to find out. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Are you MAN ENOUGH to ride this ride ?

If you "hear rumors" about anything, wouldn't the first logical action to be to call the park and ask?

Wait...are you telling me that by doing a simple internet search you can find the answer? Naaaah...that can't be it! Next thing you'll be telling me you can find maps and directions on the internets.

Every day can be Gay Pride :) But I guess there is a fascination with 'bar mentality' place in a theme park.

Remember when mentioning Gay Days at parks in a forum post was likely to start an argument over "special" rights? I think in some ways we've grown quite a bit as a nation in the last decade or so...

....still have a long long way to go...

^You got it right gator, on both accounts!

Remember when saying how nice it would be if newer rides didn't have shoulder bars and lap bars that stapled you .... oops, forget it ;)

Regarding the whole "special treatment" argument, this is a private event. From the OnTheMountain website:

The party is closed to the general public for this special gay and gay-friendly event (no regular tickets or season passes accepted)!

I used to realize how far we have come as a nation, until I moved to hickville U.S.A. This place is decades behind when it comes to accepting people who are not white, straight, and somewhat intelligent.

I give a lot of the credit to changing the level of gay acceptance to positive gay roll models, such as Ellen and Adam Lambert. I also give credit to Hollywood for giving us so many positive gay characters. Because of pop culture, a lot of gays decide to come out and reveal their sexuality, which pretty much forced most of their friends and family members to accept it, or sadly lose out in some cases.

I don't mean to take away from gay political figures and other popular forces. I appreciate their accomplishments as well.

The gay community still has a ways to go, but, as far as gay rights and acceptance goes, I feel that we are on the right track. I anticipate the world in a few decades from now with hope that more people will wake up and realize that gays just want what every other American already has; the right to achieve happiness.


Nice post, LK.

I want to switch teams and then start a Gay Humility movement where we're all humble about our greatness in being gay.

Gay people are too proud if you ask me.

Pride is one of the seven deadly sins. I'd also like to see less Gay Sloth, Gay Wrath and Gay Envy.

Come to think of it, I'd actually like to see more Gay Sloth days at the parks...

(obviously I'm kidding around here, people - smile, winky, and stuff)


I'd like to insert a joke about assless chaps but don't know how to work it in.

Don't switch teams, Gonch. You're far too valuable to lose. :)

I'll be making a big announcement on my decision of which team to play for this upcoming Thursday at 9pm...on Logo.


If you say Miami, you lose a testicle. ;)

I'll start preparing my open letter to heterosexuals just in case...

Hmmm... kidding? Damn I was actually gonna agree with you gonch!

I think we see way too much 'pride' stuff that isn't really pride at all. It's perhaps 'acting out', etc., but any minority group goes through that.

Holding my boyfriends hand (when I had one) at Great America when it is NOT gay day, is gay pride (to me). Other things would include mentioning to people (in a nice way) why it's not OK to say "thats gay..." like so many people do (or the dreaded F word).

Louis C.K. has a great little bit about that word. (I won't link it due to the adult nature - *ahemyoutubeahem*)

I relate totally because I generally think the same thing and grew up the same way.

Gonch, will you be starting a twitter page to promote your announcement?

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

^Thanks for the direction - I found the video to be pretty homophobic though. Chris Rock (who I used to admire) has a similar view.

Try that with the 'N' word ;)
