I was looking for some photos from what The Oregonian described as a "family event," this years PRIDE parade but I guess not everyone is as quick to update their sites as yours truly.
So I settled for this piece from The Portland Mercury as what the PRIDE people want as representative of the "gay community":
The State of Queers in Portland
I guess there aren't enough homos watching us, so now I am stuck interviewing Portland's Sissyboy about the state of queer culture these days. I invited Splendora, Precious Hottest She-Male, and Zebra to chat with me at my favorite Starbucks last Saturday.
The minute they walked in the door my nipples got hard; each of the Sissyboys was fierce, fashionable, and flawless. Before they sat down with me, Precious slapped a counter girl and Zebra ate a pastry out of the trash. These girls were really something else.
I haven't even read the interview and I'm sure that I don't want to. In my opinion the tales of "Precious" and "Zebra" are probably best left in the closet.
But hey, when Portland has a "family event" like this one I must be the one who is wrong...
