    It truly was a mob scene. I'm not too keen on being part of a big crush of people and not having any control of my movement and having to move along with the crowd, nut to butt, cheek to jowl.

    So this year I didn't go inside the civic center fenced in area and rode my bicycle around the outside and enjoyed it from the periphery, so to speak.

    I'm thinking of going to the Folsom Street Fair this year as well; another mob scene but so kinky that it's rather worth it.

    The attendance volume is nothing new. The last SF pride I went to was late 90's and the attendance was close to 500K.

    Estimates prior to the celebration were between 1.5 and 1.7 million people. I think it was accurate! I'll post pics later showing the diversity of who was in the paradeā€¦it was very nice.

    Sad that it ended on a sour note:

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Two men were shot and injured at San Francisco's Civic Center Sunday evening as Pride celebrations were wrapping up, according to San Francisco police.

    Multiple gun shots were fired in the area of Larkin and Grove streets around 6:35 p.m., just minutes after the official closing time of the SF Pride Celebration, according to Sgt. Dennis Toomer.

    The victims, two male adults, were both shot in the leg and sustained non-life threatening injuries, Toomer said.

    I didn't even hear about this. That's exactly where I went after the parade because it was the closest port-a-potties and I SO needed one.

    I heard about it from a friend who knows the victims. One has been released, but the other is in the hospital with a shattered femur.

    You're a fag. You're a spic. You're a half-breed. You're into freaky, disgusting shit in bed. And, you're a diseased HIV+ leper whom nobody can and will love.






    There. Now how did that feel? Did that hurt? Did that make you feel "less than"? Did that make you feel unfairly judged? I hope so, because that's just how you made me and millions of others like me feel with your narrow minded, intolerant and bigoted words. YOU and your words are EXACTLY why PRIDE exists...to say a hearty "Fuck you very much!"

    Oh, and for the record, I didn't call you anything that I am not. I am a fag (and cocksucker, pickle smoocher, fudge packer, fruitcake queer). I am a spic (proudly Puerto Rican and a 1/2 Chinese chink, gook, ching-chong-chinaman). I am a half-breed. I proudly fly my freak flag doing "disgusting shit" in bed (that's really fucking fun and hot). And, I've been hanging out on HIV's "death row" for over 28 years.

    If you're not proud to be who and what you are, to dress the way you want, speak the way you want, and have sex the way you want, and live happily despite what others may think...then you are pitiable.

    I hope that in real life you never face judgement, prejudice, intolerance or hatred for who you are or how you wish to express yourself.

    Do these words look familiar?
    Joeyphx444's blog @ http://jnvlv247.blogspot.com/...No one can label you and you may not even want to label yourself. Do what you FEEL is best and what makes you HAPPY and don't worry about other people's feeling toward you...

    You are a hypocrite.

    And, my fellow fag-spic-half-breed-freaky-HIV+ friend, I am telling you this out of love because at your age you may not want to hear this...you need to hear this.

    Love and hugs!
    Alan


    P.S. And yes, I was one of those "hot mess" kids who wore (and continues to wear) ridiculous shit.

    ...because being unashamedly who and what you are is what "Pride" is all about.
