More on Pride

Posted by on June 27 at 9:48 AM

So, a group of us got together and watched the Pride Parade from Frizzelle’s apartment overlooking Broadway and John.

Re: the moving the parade downtown controversey…

The parade this year, as in so many years past, pretty much sucked. Scraggly, small groups of marchers, sometimes two or three, made up dozens of contingents. Yawn. Even more distressing were the number of contingents that consisted of one or two cars driving down the street. Wow. Cars. Driving down Broadway. That’s not something you see every day, is it?

If we’re going to move it downtown, and invite the whole city, the parade can’t really suck so hard. It’s an embarrasment. It’s small, sad, depressing, threadbare, and uninspired. In its current condition it’s perfect for Broadway, which is sad, depressing, threadbare, etc.
