Homo Re: The Seattle Center Bill

I want to second what Dom said—it’s great idea, the city should do it.
But if the city doesn’t act… well… what’s to stop pride parade participants going to Seattle Center anyway, permits or no permits? We can have the parade down 4th Avenue end just across the street from Seattle Center… which is open to the public, right? And the gays are a part of the public, right? (We’re a large part, as Dom mentions.) So we pass the word around the parade and up and down the route: “Meet up at the fountain after the parade.”
There wouldn’t be special tents or beer gardens or disco divas or a drag stage (not a bad thing, that last item), but there would be a Space Needle, a Center House with tons of food and some bars, the lawn, and the Fountain. How could they keep us out?
