I’m in South Beach in Florida (accompanying the boyfriend on a business trip) where it’s sunny and happens to be gay pride week. Yes, in April. I didn’t know some places, including South Beach and I’m told Durham, NC have pride celebrations outside of June (Durham does so the students can participate). So far, it’s been fun. Parade tomorrow. Although, as my friend from Plantation, FL reminds me, every day is gay pride in South Beach. Heh.
I chit-chatted with some locals yesterday at a cafe about the work we do here at P8TT. They interrupted me to say they saw the story about Louis on MSNBC and “that was you?!?!” and proceeded to buy me a drink to say thanks, and asked me to post here to say thanks for all the “showin’ up” you do. So, on behalf of the friendly South Beach locals, thanks for showin’ up and gettin’ stuff done!
This is an open thread. What are your weekend plans and what are you reading?
