The parade was a success. Karen and I showed up a bit late (never making that mistake again), but it was all good. It was a blast! I was twerked on by a guy in a g-string, kissed on the cheek by a pretty lesbian and complimented on my mediocre made high waist shorts. The only down part is when the guy who looked like Gary Sinise butted me out of the way. I was sad. I was also burnt by a cigarette, but that’s okay. Overall, it was hot, sweaty, glittery and a ton of fun! My first Pride Parade was incredible :) It makes me appreciate my city more than I usually do.
