    Stonewall Pride starts today with a 7:30 PM parade in Wilton Manors, on Wilton Drive. Our second time having a nighttime parade to avoid the summer heat, most of the floats will be illuminated, which is fun. The bars will be setting up tents and having entertainment & specials.

    Tomorrow (Sunday) the Drive will be lined with vendors and have a bandshell, from 11 AM to early evening, the bars going until well after midnight. My husband will be at the Pride Center booth, representing the SMART Ride to Key West, and I'll join him mid-afternoon following a morning gay golfing event. (Contact RJ member rigsby quickly if you might be interested in that, if it's not too late)

    Hope to see some of you at Pride, and don't hesitate to say Hi! I'll be wearing one of my SMART Ride T-shirts, sunglasses, and probably my "Truman Capote" hat against the sun.

    Slightly? icon_eek.gif

    But good! We're leaving for the parade shortly. Could walk there, but I still don't want my husband doing too much after his heart bypass surgery. So I'll drive him there, and then park at friend's who are even closer, and then walk back to join him.

    We'll watch it from the new Village Pub bar, near the traffic light at NE 6th. Then tomorrow he'll be at the Pride Center booth before me, I'll join him after golf around 2 PM. Hope you can make it! icon_biggrin.gif

    Well do say hello! You've got recent & accurate pics of us above. The one in the sweater was taken this past December in New Hampshire, one of the most current I've got. Won't be wearing a hat tonight.

    Just got back from Wilton Manors. I was working most of the day and didn't have time to check RJ or see this thread. Barely made it in time to see the parade. I did scan the crowd for you, but I don't think I saw you, unless you were the guy in the sailor outfit composed of one square inch of stretchy fabric. Perhaps you saw me -- I was one of approximately 12,462 people holding up the rainbow banner, about which more later. Pics to follow.
