    Anyone going to Pensacola Pride this year? I'm debating whether or not I should go. I have heard both good and bad things about it, which can be the case with most anything. I'm a little apprehensive but I guess I need to go and see how it is for myself.

    Anyone else going? Might be fun to meet some fellow RJ-ers!

    If stereotypical gay guys are your thing, you'll love it. Pretty much every time I've gone, it's just been thousands of bitchy queens. Oh, and lots and lots of lesbians.

    I'm worried I won't fit in. I actually went for a couple of hours a couple of years ago but I left because I'm a shy guy and it wasn't that fun. My ex and I had just decided to part ways since he had moved a few states away so I was a little sad while there which might be a big part of it.

    I'm trying to meet new people though so I figured I'd try to give it a legit chance. I only live an hour from Pensacola so it isn't really far for me. From what I saw a lot of guys go into their cliques and are unapproachable. I'm naturally shy so it's hard to meet people when they go into cliques especially since I don't really associate with any of them. I want to give Pride a fair shot, but I am apprehensive at the same time. I guess I need to round up some friends and force them to go with me!

    pretty much this.

    Like anything else it's what you make of it. If you're in good company you'll have a great time.

    Thanks for the heads up. I have a friend who has been asking me to go for a couple of years now. Now I know I won't be going.

    I like PCola Beach. It takes me as long to get there as it does to go to Orange Beach or Gulf Shores in Alabama. At least going to Pcola it's straight interstate. It's been about 5-6 weeks since I've been.

    I'm ready for some beach!

    The one year I want to go I'm in the Northeast rather than Tallahassee, FL; so guess next year for me. But I've heard good things about it, you should go!

    Going ... just a little nervous ... not at all into this type of scene usually. I'll be there with a group of 8 other guys so should be fun. I hope.

    What days are people going to be there? Here is my plan for now:

    Friday: I'll be with my friend (girl) who lives in Pcola for a little bit at the beach. Might end up at my friend's condo at Portofino. I'll drive back to Mobile that night.

    Saturday: I'll come with my friend (guy) and we will hang around the beach. Might end up at friend's condo at Portofino. We will likely come home that night to Mobile.

    Yea as said earlier, it's what ya make of it & the company ya keep.

    The beach & the Portofino parties were a blast a couple years ago.

    If you're commuting back n forth some along the beach strip, prepare for ALOT of stand-still traffic.
