    So, the music started and was OK with the first DJ and about 6:00 they started the new DJ that was supposed to be the great one to carey us through the rest of the night. Boy were they wrong....
    Thousands of us were there to celebrate Pride and have a great time with others from our community. When DJ Jonathon Porter came on the stage, he looked like a deer in the headlights. The first DJ had to help him get his bearings and get the music started. We waited for things to heat up, and waited, and waited. It never happened. I've never been so dissapointed in the music at a dance party. The entire crowd stood still for hours trying to get a dance beat going and it never happened. Mr. Porter didn't seem to notice...or care what the crowd was doing. He just bopped along by himself for hours. At least someone was dancing.
    I was very dissapointed with the organizers of this party and won't be supporting any more of their work. Based on the thousands who were leaving at 9:15 when I did, I don't think I'm alone. Please tell me what you thought about it.

    Idina Menzel is a wonderful performer!! I really enjoying hearing her sing whenever she is on.

    I was at the Pier Dance last year and J. Lo was "okay." A much bigger name, but she was just okay.
