I’m here in Toronto canada for world pride this week more to follow
So what to say. it was like… mardi gras. some of the silliest things amused me. Trojan condoms booth that kept inserting “TROJAN MAN!!” into whatever song they were playing. Rooftop super soaker snipers. Every party (except the Conservatives) trying to recruit voters.
Silly of the Consies. I’m a mostly a ‘red Tory’ myself. Guess I don’t match up to Harper’s ‘Vision’.
Police forces of all types including CSIS and the RCMP with recruiting booths. (how times have changed) I tried to recruit back for the legion.
I attended the day time street celebrations and meant to go out Sunday night in my ‘discoball’ dress.
It was a hit last year at the pride after party and partly responsible for not letting my boyself lock my back up in my locker.
but I don’t know if it was the heat sunday or getting dehydrated saturday but I ended pretty much spending the day in bed. bleah.
Still a good time.
That evening while I waited for the bus. I overheard what I can only describe as a male bag lady saying “Hard Labour will straiten them out’ so I asked him why ‘they’ needing straightening. aparantly it was because ‘they’ were always protesting. But pride isn’t a protest I told him, it’s a celebration. The conversation continued. Some attitudes just have to be outlived. From the looks of it in his case that won’t be long. Mean of me to say perhaps but. it was an unpleasant capper to a beautiful day.
