San Francisco Gay Pride San Francisco 2008

Ok, So maybe I woke up on the wrong side of the bed as well as not getting a healthy breakfast but I found the Parade kind of hard to enjoy this year.

I was trying to stay positive but was having a pretty hard time. My viewing position was at the end of the parade route. Near the 8th street and Market street intersection. There were a ton of volunteers in this area to keep people from standing on things and telling the parade participants to shut down their music. There are thousands of parade viewers on this intersection but no matter if they want to enjoy the festive music as did the lucky people @ 6th and Market. Time to shut it down quick. One question, Why? We are in a commercial intersection in the middle of a Sunday afternoon. Who the heck could you be disturbing as if it even matters. Maybe their are a couple of people sleeping at the near by Holiday Inn. So what? Hey suckas! I have an idea. Get your ass out of bed and come rock out with the samba band.

Next complaint:
The parade was rather long. Through most of it, we were just standing there looking at nothing, waiting for the next float to come by. Then we would be lucky if it was at all interesting or the slightest bit gay. There is nothing gay about little kids on scooters or Kaiser. Most of the parade was about branding or someones political agenda. Come on folks, if you are going to participate in this parade to try to get votes or sell freakin' health insurance that should be covered by our government anyway, Please, PLEASE, please, frickin' GAY IT UP, Yo! What parade exactly do you think you are participating in?

Final Complaint:
SF gay pride parade is the one time when all the homos can come out and say look at me, this is who I am and I want to be accepted. So why not call this parade by it's name? I here so many people calling this the SF Pride Parade including the news channels. It is the fucking Gay Pride Parade. Listen, the heart and soul of this parade is about standing up for yourself and demanding some dignity. So Please, afford the event some respect and call it what it is, The San Francisco Gay Pride Parade.

And that is all I have to say about that.
