Out and proud

Seattle Pride suffered a weird schizophrenia this year. I won't go into all the OMG!DRAMA, but there were two parades this year: on Saturday, there was a parade in the gayborhood of Cap Hill, with a celebration at Volunteer Park, and a much bigger parade on Sunday downtown, with a celebration at Seattle Center.

I was too dead from Friday night (jello shots are fucking evil, even more so when they're being sold by two hot guys fundraising for an AIDS charity) to go to the Saturday parade, which was awesome by all accounts. Apparently that's where almost all the edgier stuff was. Ah, well.

Sunday, I met bconn, ctseawa, and others at Uptown Espresso around 10. The parade was pretty good, with a lot of inspired floats. This year, The Stranger (a local alternative weekly) awarded prizes to the top 3 best floats. The first place winner was deservedly awarded to the NWBears and their "Bears, Bath, & Beyond" float.

The festival at Seattle Center was almost as good as least year. Lots of shirtless beef playing in the fountain. Saw the same guy that I ran into on Friday (talked about here). It took me a few moments to work up the courage to go over and say something, and by that time he was gone. Didn't see him the rest of the day. Bummer. Hit on another guy who turned out to be straight. Bah.

Later that night, I decided I wasn't quite done with Pride, so I headed up to the street fair being thrown by The Cuff. Got all the up there, took one look at the block+ line to get in, and headed to CC's for a quick drink instead. Did a bit more socializing, and headed home.
