Vibrant stallions of luv in their underwear strutting their stuff on the boulevard… Where else can you revel in such awesomeness than in the Fabu Dallas Gay Pride Parade? I go every year. Mostly for the guys in their undies and I have no shame to admit that. Woohoo for almost naked men!!! But let’s ease into the event by describing the audience first, the normal folks like you and me.
So at Gay Pride, mostly, the peeps in attendance are not like you and me after all. They have a more… Flamboyant side. So the show is as much in the parade than on the sidewalks. Sometimes it’s even way better on the sidewalks.
Bob, Grat, Bill, and Emmett (Joe, Jack, William, et Averell for the Frenchies out there)
A cowboy needs nothing else than his hat and boots. Obviously!
My buddies from last year! Still voguing!!!
The only heterosexual present but so fearful he wrote “Vaginas r Awesome” on his chest. Dude! Was this really necessary?
One always needs a little bear love…
Or koala bear love (check out the boots by 90 degree weather!)
This type of skirt is totally in this year for your information
See what I’m sayin’? I must get me one of these
And also lesbian chic is mowhawkish… I had no idea!
King’s Road Revival
If you don’t sport a Mowhawk, I don’t think you stand a chance with da ladies in 2009
There is always a man with big balls (I think I already made that joke but I can’t resist)
And a lonely man who would gain popularity, no doubt, if he wore better shorts
Some did a little dance, made a little love
And others followed suit
Some just looked way too cool even if their pants were tucked in their tennis shoes
Some had primo seating arrangements (especially compared to me that had no seating arrangements whatsoever)
A hippie looking dude reclined under the shaded trees while I, a GIRL, agonized in the burning sun and is that even fair?
Thank goodness, this chick made up for all the non-moving reclined attendants with her enthusiasm. She was VERY enthusiastic.
And these two characters were rather rambunctious as well but for Pete’s sake, where was the Japanese short police?
Did you know that gay men have very good taste in underwear? Probably because they show them to so many people!
Now, don’t think that everybody had as good a time as the folks above depicted. Oooh no! I think some had a pretty crappy time actually.
There was the dog in a bag. He looked pretty downtrodden if you ask me.
Then there was the dog who fought for his life
And the little boy who was so tired from all the gayness
The dehydrated nonna
And last but not least this poor little horse that looked way too frail to accommodate all that weight.
Now that totally pissed me off big time! I hope that horse still has a back. In case no one had the guts to tell this guy, let me: “you are way too non-thin to ride a pony!” Sometimes, you just have to call a cat a cat.
To be continued…
Glad to see you’re back.
You’re a regular Herb Ritts….. with curves!
Thanks Razz! It’s good to be back but I had forgotten how long it takes to prepare these posts!
And yes I do have curves! Itty Bitty ones but curves nonetheless! Thanks for reminding me (I tend to forget!)
Herb Ritts! Hee! Hee! I wish! Much better to be Herb Ritts than Annie Leibovitz these days, eh!
YAY! So relieved to see that you are alive and well, still livin’ it up with the larger than life brigade of Dallas and still sporting that evil wit of yours. I adore the little boy “tired out from all the gayness”. Just looking at him makes me want to collapse onto a sofa. Now I’m gonna get me a mohawk. Long Live King’s Road Revivalism, lesbian, straight or otherwise. You had blue hair once, non?
I did have blue hair! Good memory, Epic! King’s Road dyed, no less. The only problem with blue hair is that with time it turns into a greenish yellowish mess. But blue was tres cool.
When you get your mowhawk, please send a pic… I’m sure I can hook ya up! Hee! Hee! 🙂
In Australia the term, “blue rinse set” refers to very old women as a group.
Say no to blue hair!
Just a quick note to say thanks for sharing the great Pride pics! We missed the parade and all the festivities. But we would never miss…your birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! We wish you the very best on your special day. We’ve got to get together soon and catch up. Enjoy! James and Hoong Nan ; ^ )
I have to say, you’re an amazing photographer and I love your writing.
soooo hillarious! love it!
