First, there’s plenty to do before we even get to the weekend. Workin’ stiffs, of which I now be one, gird your loins and take one for the team. It’s gonna be a busy week.


Pride Pub quizDid you know that it’s the 40th anniversary of the first Pride parade commemorating the June 1969 Stonewall riots? That’s why June is Pride month kids. Do you know about Harvey Milk day and Anita Bryant, Lon Mabon and the OCA? Have you ever been to the Lesbian Herstory Archives?

Pride Pants partyI’m too cheap to busy Diesel jeans but I sure as hell sport ’em when they come my way. And I have no hesitation before attending one of their swag-laden parties. But the real reason to attend this soiree, besides Saucebox’s kick-ass Asian fusion is my girl Sugar Rai‘s artwork and live aerosol painting.

PaparazziWalk the red carpet with larger than life drag-celeb-impersonators. Will we see a catfight between Marilyn Monroe and Brangelina? I Hope so!
