osakarob saidI'm sorry for being so naive, but I have to ask. Is the original post meant to be some sort of inside joke?
Art_DecoFor anyone contemplating coming to south Florida, and particularly to Wilton Manors for Stonewall Pride and Parade, be aware it looks like steady rain Saturday and Sunday
I had to search to find out what exactly a Wilton Manors is......
Apparently, there is a two square mile neighborhood north of downtown Ft. Lauderdale called Wilton Manors. I'm sure it is a charming little hamlet, but I don't understand why the need to share the local weather report with us here on a globally read site.
I might understand it if the OP was warning of impending storms for NY pride, SF, or even Miami, but a two square mile neighborhood?!
What am I missing?
You are missing your brain, obviously. I stated in the OP that I'd been contacted in RJ e-mail by guys planning to be here for Stonewall Pride, whom I hope to meet. Which involves not only Wilton Manors, but also Fort Lauderdale, and Oakland Park, 3 of the most gay cities by percentage in the entire US. The 2 square miles isn't important in itself, but rather what is happening for gay pride here.
Since some of those guys who let me know they're coming here are driving in from other parts of Florida, others RJ members may be as well. A Pride draws many people from all around. Hence I let them know via a thread that the weather wasn't looking good, and to check for online updates.
I gather that southbeach1500 and his cohorts have been bashing me about it. Well, that's typical. They trash anything of benefit to gays, try to discourage gay unity & pride in every aspect, encourage us to abandon our political friends in favor of our enemies. If you want to align yourself with that self-loathing anti-gay clique fine.
But it's not gonna stop me or others from posting things of useful benefit to our gay community. So play the spoiler if you like, you'll be in bad company.
