Gay Pride

This weekend is the Long Beach Gay Pride Festival. It's going to be my very first Pride. I'm pretty excited! I really don't know what to expect though. All my friends tell me it's going to be fun - as long as I let it. So I'm really hoping I let my guard down and just have lots of fun. I know there will be lots of guys there!! And it's going to be a pretty warm day, so I'm anticipating a lot of shirtless guys walking around. I jokingly said that my goal is to make out with at least one hot guy there. ;) Maybe I don't want that to be a joke though. hehe.

I'm excited that Sara Bareilles is performing!! She's on my favorite artists. God, I can only imagine how many people will be there at the main stage to see her performance. But the whole thing is included in the $20 ticket, so I don't care if I have to be squished. Plus, maybe I can be squished by some hot muscle guys. HAHA. We'll stake our spot among hot guys.

I'll definitely be taking LOADS of pictures. I'll post them and write all about it once I get home from it this Sunday. Wish me luck with my goal! :P

I think you will have a great time!! Gay pride events are usually active, fun, noisy, happy, silly, eye-candy, exciting, entertaining....

The first time I went to a pride event, I cried because of the overwhelming emotions of seeing so many people in one place. (NYC). Long Beach is the third largest in the country - so I'm sure its equally as amazing.

Go and have fun, and be yourself - because thats the most important part. However, don't forget the reasons behind these sort of events, how far our community has come, and how far we have to go.

:)


ps: omg i used to work with one of their former staff members, and one of their current staff people. cool. have fun
