Pride Night?

Sunday, September 11, 2005 3:07 PM
I went pride day at Six Flags Great America in 2004. And, even though there were a lot of "us" there. It seemed like any other park visit to me. Hords of people long lines, and, even though there were a lot of really friendly, and better looking guys there than normal. It was pretty much like any other visit.

On the other hand, I went to La Ronde for pride a few years ago. And, it was very "out there" Lots of people haning out ribbons, and stickers. A couple dudes in drag. Lot's of people walking around wearing rainbow lais. It was a lot more fun. Plus tons of Muscle guys!!! Wow!!! A former Mr. America was there...I think.

And, since it was on the same week as Montreals pride. There was an estimated 60,000 attending. nothing compared to the 2,000,000 at Montreal pride. Never saw so many gay men in my life. Except at Toronto's pride which had over 1,000,000.) allways hope to do that again sometime!

I wish I could go to, seeing that I know all but 3 gay guys, including myself.

Well Dexter, join us all for PPP @ Knoebel's. State College ain't that far away. A crew of us from Philly will be there, mOOSH of course, and lord knows how many of the rest of the homer-sexuals ;)

I am planning on going to PPP, but I will be bringing a group of "straights", and an 11 year old who thinks "gay" means "stupid", lol.

All of the above is a maybe though. It's all in the planning stages as of now.

If I'm there, I'll see you there.

Wow is anybody on this site not gay besides me? (Not offensive) I don;t think anythings wrong with being gay.
Monday, September 12, 2005 10:58 PM
I'm not gay.

No, you're the only one. Sorry.

Kirt Cobain said it best. "Everyone is gay." ;)

Seriously. Your best friend could be gay and you may never know. A lot of gays are not the stereotypical sissyboys the media would have you to believe.

When I tell people that I am gay, they are shocked to say the least. I'm sure that I'm not the only one here that could stay in the closet without arousing any suspitions if they wanted to (in life, not just online).

My point is, I'm just a regular guy who happens to be gay.

I am not gay, I love hot men just like you guys. ;-)

I just think that Americans still have such a Puritan vantage point where sexual matters and, particularly, homosexual matters are concerned. When you consider how many married men do stuff on the down-low. . .well, it would make most people's hair stand on end. . .Most of my best friends are straight, heterosexual guys and we have great, spirited discussions on sex and many other matters. I think every straight guy needs at least one or two gay friends.

But, when you have a President and his party in November, 2004, telling the populace that "those gays" are coming into your neighborhoods and wanting to get married and "take over" and rewrite the Constitution, well, you're left with what you're left with. . .what we have now. . .an uninformed and scared public that still thinks that homosexuality is the work of Satan and his minions.

Dexter: Well don't be a stranger if you do. We'll be easy to pick out - just check my photo. Me, the BF, and the hag... er my lovely friend Adrienne (in case she's reading this ;) ) will be there.

mOOSH: UMmm yeah.... riiiiight.

coasterqueen: I think you and Adrienne should compare notes. She's got a whole chorus ;)

"Not that there's anything wrong with that!" :)

Not *everyone* here is gay...but we DO seem to have lost most, if not all, of the hardcore homophobes/fundamentalists....real shame that! ;)

Yah, I'm kinda bummed about that too. I just love people who are always *right*.

Sure wish I could go. Just too far away.

Warm fuzzy str8 boi hugs to all my pride peeps going to this event. My wife and I are part of this online game called "city of heroes" and were given the honor of being the "token" couple in an otherwise all "family" Guild. :)

Wish we lived closer to Ohio, I'd wear my NW Aids Walk Tank that has OBEY ME! plastered all over the front... he he...

Have fun over there!

Are we any closer to a meeting place and time? I know we've bandied that about a bit but I wasn't sure we'd arrived at anyth8ing.

Also, are there any post PKI plans in play?

I'm thinking a dancing at the Dock kind of thing might work?

My roomie and I will probably go to Serpeant after the park...Beast Bash is the next day and my roomie is the world's thinnest ACE Member (sorry) ;) so we considered doing that too- but most likely not. We were also considering going to that restaurant in Cincy owned by some radio station- the one with pictures pasted inside the urinals so you end up peeing in their faces :) Don't remember the name of the place though.

Someone had mentioned the Beast Entrance at 7pm and I had noted to find someplace campier to meet and beyond that there hasn't been much discussion...

Well...if it wasn't for the fact that the kidde ride area will probably be closed, there's "Pixie & Dixie's Swing Set" or better yet - "Dick Dastardly's Biplanes". But I'm guessing that only the bisexuals would want to meet there. :)

There's also the traditional "ACE Brick" up front.

And the Serpeant is definately the place to be afterwards! :)

Hey newbie here...I plan go to PKI pride night and would like to meet up with any C-Buzz posters planning to go. No plans afterwards though have considered going to Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom either Saturday or Sunday, never been there. Post a meeting point/time for PKI or e-mail me. Also may go to Knoebels PPP on Oct. 8. again willing to meet up with any other members, post or e-mail.

As a side note, I went to Fairgrounds at SFGA on sept. 9th and had a great time. I thought it was well worth the $42 the lines were quite tolerable if not walk-ons. I first rode Nitro 3x in a row the lines were walk ons, they even let you stay on if nobody was in the queue line for your seat. I don't think my Kingda Ka experience could have been any better had I gone during regular public session. After reading a few of the TR posts/experienses of long waits in line for a ride that wasn't even running yet. Let me just say I waited 1 hour from 8:10 pm and stood at the queue line for the second seat row/second train, my favorite spot waiting for the magic to happen...and it did..."any single riders for the front seat, we need one single rider?" I nearly jumped over the gate before they opened them... there I was riding Kingda Ka for the first time in the front seat, one hour wait...the guy I shared the front row with had waited a half hour longer than I did. That one hour wait was the longest wait I had the entire night.
