Pride Parade

The freebies at the pride parade this year were pretty cool. I mean usually you just get free condoms and free candy tossed at you. This year I got a coupon for $5 off my next purchase at Whole Foods and also a coupon from Alaska Airlines for 10% of my next flight. Score!

I also had great seats in the shade and great company (some of which brought rainbow jello shots for us)! And I got to see friends in the parade, including one that was naked and painted like she was on fire. As she said, apparently naked lesbians on fire are very popular at the parade! :)

The funniest part of the parade was the reaction to the female fire fighters. They walked along side their fire truck and women in the parade watching crowd kept running out into the path of the parade and throwing themselves down onto the street as if they were in distress - so the fire fighters would rescue them! One after they other, lesbians were dropping like flies in the street! It was so much fun to watch them being rescued and helped up by the fire fighters.

The parade has sadly gone very commercial though. More than half the entries were advertisers just trying to get business. Some of them at least wore rainbows or something so they looked like they were part of the parade. But in one case a giant van just drove through with signs about condos and the website and starting prices of said condos. I just don't think people should be allowed into the parade to only advertise, unless they are going to provide something entertaining. I mean these condo people didn't even try! If I ever join the parade, I'll provide a pole and we'll do pole tricks all the way through the parade.
