    AW SWEET! It looks like I'm gonna be there for at least the start of it. I finalized NYC travel plans a few days ago, and didn't discover until just now that my plans coincide with the event.

    I'M PUMPED!! icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm going to be kind of, going to spend the weekend there by myself, looking at martial arts schools and maybe visiting friends.

    But I definitely am hitting up Nasty Pig since I need more socks. =icon_biggrin.gif

    I want to check it out too, seeing as I'll be up there and I want to go to one of the parades. But, those party videos seems intimidating, seeing extreme 10/10 hot guys insane crowds. Are pride events usually friendly and open with people in general? I want to meet people there, but it seems scurry if people will be shallow :/

    Id go if there were more attractive people on the East Coast.

    I'll just stick with San Diego Pride as always.

    Mark me down for NYC Pride and Ptown Bear Week this year. Incredibly excited about both. Hope to see some of you out there.

    I've been every year since I moved here. Contemplating marching again this year, but it's always so hot.

    Two things you should consider doing if you are in the area for Pride.

    1) is the Annual Pride 5 mile run in central park. It's a great way to kick off your Saturday with other gay runners and people who support us.

    and

    2) Not a gay event, but I'll be playing so you guys should come!

    You can sign up for the Pride 5 mile through New York Road Runners at

    nyrr.org. It's like 23 dollars if you do it now and it looks like it's filling up.

    i have no idea. i usually go with a group of friends and we just talk to each other or meet new people through friends of friends of friends which makes kinda makes everyone obligated to be nice to each other.

    nyc is such a gay gay gay city all the time that i dont think people's attitude, good or bad, will change because of a pride week. i am sure there will be both very nice and very bitchy people as usual.

    Man, I have never been to a pride, let alone a large one. Looks like so much fun.
