    Ello gents,

    Pretty much ever since I had an interest in going to SF Pride I've had to work that weekend, but this year I am free.

    Besides going to see Camper Van Beethoven's 25th anniversary show at the Fillmore on Saturday, I have the weekend open.

    Thus, some help.

    1) Are the afterparties better than the actual street festival?

    2) Is it all blaring diva house and drag shows?

    3) Is it just another trashy street fest...but for gays?

    I guess it's a "you have to see it once" kind of thing, then you decide if you ever want to return again.



    thanks

    Diva house hahah I know exactly what you mean. I have been reading some of your posting and I know you like electronica specially house.

    SF pride is huge (thousands of people)

    1) Are the afterparties better than the actual street festival?

    NO! but the after partys are always good. I would say different

    2) Is it all blaring diva house and drag shows?

    NO! Good house music. There is a stage called Fag Fridays
    With good DJ's (David Harness SF Local) Never heared SF house music?

    3) Is it just another trashy street fest...but for gays?

    NO! all though it does end up trashed.

    I hope I answered your questions and I hope you make it this way.

    You wont regret it.

    actually I don't really dig on house...it's like speed disco to me. Too repetitive

    For some reason I've met very few homos who love funky breaks, bootybass, dubstep, drum and bass and midtempo breaks (or glitch hop, psyhop)....all the things I love.

    Still not going to change the fact that I'll be there.

    Too repetitive, heared that a lot but I still like it. I love Drum n bass, Jungle and Breakbeats. The rest is not my style all though respect your choices icon_biggrin.gif.

    Later and take care.

    Well I have a feeling you really want to go!

    My favorite thing about pride is the dancing in the street.

    There are a few stages set up along the streets. Everybody that is a fun somebody usually goes.

    I wouldn't expect anything thou just have a good time.

    I used to host an awesome pride party. I think last one we had a smaller gather but still had about 4 DJs and 100 people in my house. The year before we have a few hundred people come through, porn stars, DJs, drag queens, sisters of perpetual indulgence... So much fun. I will miss it.
