I am going to Gay Parade on Halsted St on June 27th Sunday. Who will you be there if anyone is from Chicago or travel to Chicago this weekend? Where and when will you meet at? It would be cool to meet and have talk together. Hope to see you there if it is possible.

Thanks,

Big777jet

As a non-homophobic heterosexual, I am entirely against gay pride parades. It's completely contradicting to the gay community, because you guys say you want to be the same and be treated the same, yet you have parades of your own...................I don't see the logic.

Gay parades, if anything, dwindle any image of equality that the gay community has with the straight community.

Ok flame away now, that's what happens most to American conseratives on these boards.  Smile

I agree with what NWA742 has to say, and his reasons. By the way, I'm planning a heterosexual pride parade in downtown Jackson, MS on the 29th. Mr. Bergis is the Grand Marshall.

See, I find it funny how people line the streets in celebration for gay pride parades, yet if I were to run through the streets of Parker screaming "I'm Straight I'm Straight, YAY!!!" I would at best get wierd smirks. At worst I would be condemned as a homophobic extremist.

Ironic, isn't it? So you are gay, hey that's great! Good for you, it's your life, you can do whatever the hell you want. But why the hell have a parade about it? Like NWA said, you wish to be treated like anybody else, yet you parade through the streets?

Where's the logic behind that?

Because everyone loves a good parade.
And no one does a parade better than a bunch of drag queens before brunch.

LOL! Thanks for making me laugh first thing in the morning.

I have a brother and a good friend, both of whom are gay. I love them both, I support them, their preference is their business, and makes no difference to me whatsoever. Both of them do not attend any Pride activities, based on the fact they feel they have nothing to prove or seek recognition/acknowledgment about from anyone. I too question the necessity
of pride day parades, but I suppose their are two sides to every issue.

i really REALLY hate parades. all sorts of parades, what is the point?

i also really detest the gay pride parade even more. never been, but if i get sick of the queens in the bars, i cant imagine what they are like at this parade. a friend has convinced me to go for a bit here, to the nyc pride parade on sunday. not really looking forward to it, but hopefully i'll be drunk, and make it through--or if i am really lucky, i'll be called into work!

incidentally, here are some rules i found today (love #4)

ADVICE FOR RECENT ARRIVALS
Dos & Don'ts & More Don'ts for Gay Boy Refugees
by Nate Lippens


So you made it out of that backwater town in one piece. Now comes the hard part--acclimating to a new place and living an openly gay life. Soon enough you will discover which bars cater to your distorted physical ideals, that meth is very bad, and that a deep tan is ugly and pre-cancerous--but what about the other stuff? Here's a cheat sheet to save you some time and trouble.

1. You are not a strong black woman. You never will be.

2. I know it was terrible being the fag in your school/small town/own mind, but don't introduce yourself to people with this information. Being gay is, and should be, the least interesting thing about you.

3. If your mother is the greatest woman who ever lived, keep it to yourself. The holiday orphans don't want to hear it. On the flip side, your family will always be a part of you even if you never speak to them again, but try not to spend your life in reaction to them.

4. Rainbow flags, bumper stickers, and wind socks are no different than Green Bay Packers fans painting their faces green and gold: a complete embarrassment. Pride can be as ugly and warping as shame.

5. Gay life can be empty and depressing, but bitching about it outside the confines of a few close friends will get you tagged as bitter. Yes, the gay mainstream is alienating with its cookie-cutter bars, bad dance music, and Queer as Folk. It's enough to make you turn straight. But electroshock doesn't work and Jesus is a sci-fi character.

6. Don't fraternize with people who haven't come out.

7. Your masculinity has most likely been called into question. Anything you do in reaction to it will be a failure. Don't try to prove or disprove anything.

8. There is a difference between being effeminate and being a queen. Being effeminate is just that--being. Being a queen is an affectation. I can't throw a ball, but I don't call anyone "girl," even female children.

9. Avoid she-bonics: referring to each other as Girl, She, and Her. "What's her problem?" That you are an idiot. This includes: Bitchslap, Girlfriend, Shit pussy, Mangina.

10. Don't be a misogynist asshole. Leave the tuna jokes back in your small town with your usage of Jew as a verb. If it weren't for lesbians and feminism, we'd still be sucking cock in truck-stop restrooms. I mean exclusively.

11. I've never been to a bathhouse. No, really. So I can't advise you on it but I do know they are basically a petri dish of STDs. If you are okay with HIV, herpes, gonorrhea, syphilis, and other STDs, by all means fuck your brains out.

12. Do not have black-and-white photos à la Bruce Weber taken of you and your beloved. And if you must, then don't hang them up as "art" in your home.

13. Don't kiss and tell. Or fuck, suck, rim, or fist and tell. Think of your bedroom like Vegas: What happens there stays there. It will keep you from gossiping, which is the true heart of darkness, and will create a sense of mystery. Besides the cruelty of nicknaming someone Princess Tiny Meat (it would make a wonderful DJ name though), it isn't good karma. And what modestly endowed dude who sucks a mean cock is going to want to go home with you after that?

14. Bros before hos. I learned this the hard way: Do not sleep with a friend's ex-boyfriend. Ever. Even if they say they don't care, they do.

15. You are 200 times more likely to be an alcoholic than your straight counterparts.

16. Beauty fades. Develop some inner resources, otherwise when it goes, those of us with less far to fall will laugh at you. To your aging face.

17. Men, like lotto tickets, should not be had every day. The odds are the same.

18. Romantic friendships will end up being neither.

19. Cultivate friendships with straight men. "But we have nothing in common," you say? Bullshit. You are men. Many straight men are in fact softer and sweeter than their faggoty brothers.

20. Make friends with at least one dyke, you silly faggot. When the shit goes down--for instance your mother dies--fags will drop you in an instant if you aren't fun. Dykes will come to your house with food.

21. Don't make friendships based solely around how outrageous you are. It's a shitty kind of attention.

22. Don't refer to anyone as a fag hag. It's rude. Also don't hang out with fag hags.

23. Don't date people who have scars that are older than you.

24. After all of that, you are still not a strong black woman.

Well, gay pride parades are a celebration of a community. There's no gay "heritage" per se and I think they were a way for the gay community to gain visibility and make a statement. Now they are prevalent throughout the country through the month of June (or September as it is done here in Dallas). I'm gay and I don't necessarily identify with most of the people who are represented in the parade (like leather daddies, etc), but I don't think there's anything wrong with having them EXCEPT when people assume that is what ALL gay people are like.

And no, I am not going to the Chicago parade.



That's why we're here.

Back on topic: Am I going to Chicago Pride? I am proud of me already! The hockey loving, car engine fixing, bicycling, gay me! Why do I need to mill about with alcoholics, drug addicts, and boy looking things that just are there to suck face with other boy looking things and have attitude to everthing else? Besides, I am going out of the country this weekend: The homeland of my heart, Vancouver BC, becons!

For me, any day of the year is a Straight Parade. You see them all the time. Couples holding hands in the park, kissing in the movies, romantic dinners in restaurants.... You see them on TV with TLC (all these Wedding and baby stories), Soap Operas, reality shows...

Basically, everywhere I look, it's straight-land... Unless I'm in the village of course.

It took me a lot of guts in my youth to come out. So the parade is for me a way of saying: "I'm proud of who I am, and I'm glad I'm sharing this with lots of people around me", whether they be gay or not. It's just one huge party, so why not celebrate it?

Hey, Toronto has some-sort of a Caribbean Parade... I don't really know what it is... But why doesn't anyone say: "Ok, why show the world you are from the Caribbean?"
The point is not to show the world. It's just that you are proud of who you are, and you want to share it with other people. Easy as that.

I don't get why the gays get their own day, blacks get their own channel/orginizations/scholarships, women get their own channel, but straight, regular men don't get their own thing (other than Spike TV)....something wrong here?
