PRIDE!

Proud Balconies Dude/Darth DJ...just read the sign behind her, k?
DJ Dan Step on garbage Dakoze's Tat


This past Sunday marked the finale of Pride week and in TO that meant no less than 1,000,000 people coming together to voice a collective "fuck you" to ignorance. Well, not really, it was a much happier "fuck you". Rainbow babies, old dudes in assless leather chaps, beautifully costumed transsexuals, first generation immigrant families, cute caucasian grandmothers, young hellians, and then some, made for a crowd like none I've seen. I liked it better than 2004, mostly because I made it to the Funkasia stage with DJ Zahra who is a class in inspiration. Lawyer by day, DJ by night, magnanimous through and through.

Darth's chikna ('smooth-faced') self was getting a whole lotta attention. Whilst myself and Rajbo strolled and randomly slapped each other's asses because it was totally kosher to do so. My Flickr's been updated with the lates. The Labatt vessesls are just a prop. Ha. Sadly, I used up all my free space for this month so I'm going to have to wait till the 1st to post the rest of the nekkid pics...will get a pro account when I turn pro.

Seriously, I can't stress what a good time Pride is. It's really the best street party of the summer here. And by street I don't mean some shadowy side-street, I mean Yonge Street, smack downtown, in the middle of it all. I couldn't be happier writing that this 25th anniversary was fully about acceptance, not simply tolerance. In Canada, we are getting very close to passing a marriage ammendment, the MPs are even cutting their longass summer vacations short to resolve the issue. *gasp* Like a bunch of babies, those MPs, "waaaaaa, but I don't WANNA work during the summer!".

All in all, if you're ever in this part of the Americas during Pride Week then don't be a Stephen Harper...and do visit the Pride Parade.

Yay to Canada for approving gay marriage. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/29/international/americas/29canada.html?

Ugh to living in a supposedly liberal state like Massachusetts where the governor is stuck in the stone ages.

YAY! Getting closer to becoming the Netherlands with every parilamentary year! Next year, legal weed, the year after, legal prostitution. And the year after that, we get invaded by our neighbours to the South!

You know Rahul, we're in serious need of population here, watchoo waiting for?!

Oh oh oh oh oooh Great Turban, I am not worthy! Forgive the gush, yours was one of the first blogs I ever read and I've been hooked since. Oh jeez, this is a high note in my blog track. Thank you.
