Happy Pride...

The 28th annual Pride Festival, celebrating gay and lesbian rights, went down in my city yesterday…

Just like last year, I put on a short skirt and flats and tons of sunscreen and went to have a grand ol’ time with some of the most gorgeous people on the planet…

Ran into many icons of the gay community… all wonderful wonderful people

Lola with her gorgeous tutu and uncovered boobs was hilarious… squirting water on my chest before we took a picture…

Michelle ‘the drag queen of the universe’ Ross smashed the competition with her flawless Diana Ross and Rihanna impersonations…

Ill Nana ripped up the stage with their splits, high octane jumps and kicks, plies and stomps… fierceness!!

My Nigerian drag queen friend Mandy put on his gele and lipstick and ‘Mariam Makeba’d” everybody to joy…

Though I didn’t end up going to her show… the most important drag queen in the universe RuPaul performed… and I heard it was the business… YOU BETTER WORK!!!

The sexyass black Motorola guy wore underwear even smaller and tighter than what we had on last year…

The Trojan guys were still out in full effect… as were the Td boys… all beautiful men…

The Chinese drag- geishas I recognized from last year… looking even more gorgeous…

Old friends, new friends and everybody inbetween… it was like a reunion of sorts…

I got approached by a few lesbians…
…got kissed by a gay guy… by mistake… and proceeded to hook him up with my sexyass friend… lol

Took so many pictures… had some drinks… tons of conversation… and dancing…

I probably go on too much about this… but I absolutely love Canada for giving people a voice, a chance to love freely… to be themselves.

…in the midst of the madness… I met a boy...
…He’s 6ft5 and quiet and straight and not-homophobic and nice...
