    Well my partner and I are going to the Toronto pride on June 29th. It should be a zoo with over 500,000 participating (including a lot of straights).

    My first pride was 1987 and I took place in the march. It was a lot of fun.

    Are you thinking of marching "ItsMyLive"?

    Still never been to a pride festival, maybe I'm afraid of who I'll bump into.

    This may be good or bad. My ex is moving to silver lake (http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/129470/) this weekend and I am going to help him. He is here in san diego now. I hope the traffic and everything is not too bad.

    My experience with L.A. Pride festivals in the past has been to see a whole lot of gays (not all but WAY too many) acting in such a way so as to not make me feel very "proud" (of course, those are the ones the TV news cameras always happen to zoom in on), lots of people who look like they LITERALLY just crawled out of the woodwork, and tons of lesbians with really bad haircuts.

    My past experiences are that Sunday is the best day to go..especially in the afternoon. Thats when the guys come out and it gets packed. Most of the local guys tend to hang out at the jam packed bars across from the festival and sometimes thats more fun then the actual festival.

    Lol, I didn't go, my friend wasn't up to it, so instead we went to the night clubs, and I went to my first gay bar! icon_razz.gif

    It was much better, considering that the gay pride was over priced with crap music.

    well my ex was not able to secure his keys (to his new apartment in silverlake) cause the keyholder was out at pride somewhere! Oh well I guess he will get it next week and we will probably explore L.A. and move him in next weekend.
