    I recognized a few of the faces in the chorus, from when we all performed at Gala in Miami. They did a hilarious gay spoof of HMS Pinafore, called The SS Metaphor. Those boys can really camp it up, and you get a hint of that in the clip.

    I always thought Minneapolis is a great town for gays, and it claims to have the 3rd largest gay pride parade after SF and NYC. Not sure about being the gayest city in the US, though.

    It does have a strong drag scene, however, as well as leather & bear. PDAs are only acceptable on a short stretch of Hennepin Ave, unlike in SF, and attitudes towards gays degrade dramatically about 10 miles outside of town, in the heavily conservative newer suburbs.

    So enlighten us, from Arizona. I lived in Minneapolis for a time, and nearby on the North Dakota/Minnesota border for years, going to the Twin Cities often.

    I led the gay pride parade there twice on a motorcycle, and have posted pics of it here. Now please tell us your knowledge about Mpls, and where I have erred.

    Minneapolis is a great place to live during the Spring, Summer and Fall. I really did enjoy my first winter away, but I'm looking forward to visiting again in less than 2 weeks!

    I have never been to Minneapolis, but I had friends who had lived there in the past decade, and they said it was an open-minded, accepting and tolerant city. But this may be true only of the city and not out in the hinterlands. The catholic church says it will organize a grassroots campaign to make sure that marriage can only be between a man and woman in one of the latest referendums, and we may see their wish come true if the other cities and communities are not as welcoming and progressive as Minneapolis.
