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 ;)
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.
No, you're the only one. Sorry.
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.
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.
mOOSH: UMmm yeah.... riiiiight.
coasterqueen: I think you and Adrienne should compare notes. She's got a whole chorus ;)
I don;t think anythings wrong with being gay.
"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! ;)
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!
Also, are there any post PKI plans in play?
I'm thinking a dancing at the Dock kind of thing might work?
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...
There's also the traditional "ACE Brick" up front.
And the Serpeant is definately the place to be afterwards! :)
still flaming in Tampa
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.
