Today was the Portland Gay Pride Parade. We attended as we always due and were happy to be in the company of Derek as well as a few of their rugby teammates. And, as always, we made friends with all of the lesbians with kids nearby. This year, one of the moms was wearing a shirt which said on the front “Well, there are lesbians….” and on the back said “and there are drunk straight girls” with a picture of a girl in a large martini glass. She makes these shirts. I love it. Kind of goes along with a discussion Hubman had on his blog a while back. (Click here if you want to read it.) Anyway, Garbanzo got her card – and promises to get me one. Each year at Pride, I find a t-shirt that I love the message of and have to buy it. This was my choice this year.
Anyway, back to the pictures. I will give you a vignette of the signs and random pictures I took this year. You won’t see any drag queens in it. I think I’m saving them for a different post. Many were so fabulous that they should be a focus of their own.
