Gay Pride, Straight Smooching



Market Street at the end of the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade turned into a pedestrian walking path for a while and it was utterly delightful, reminding everyone how lovely the thoroughfare could be without cars.



The Civic Center Plaza was much too crowded for anyone with a touch of claustrophobia, so we navigated through the margins of the event on Golden Gate Avenue and noticed that a large number of the attendees seemed to be young suburbanites looking for a free party in San Francisco.



A surprising number of them were opposite-sex couples...



...and instead of looking frightened or disgusted by the gays and lesbians, as was once the case, they seemed to be turned on.

The girl in the green top. She appears to be doing it right, but it's hard to tell if she's getting the desired outcome from the guy she's straddling.

As for the blonde in picture #3... Honey. Sucking face is just an expression. Dial it down a bit.

Sometimes it's a little embarrassing being a breeder.

Speaking as someone who experienced the first gay pride events locally some 40 years ago, the surprising number of straight people attending on Sunday surprised me as well. I thought at first that gay pride must be turning infectious, but it seems that there are so few public events going on these days in the streets that most anyone is happy to participate.

Dear Matty: No breeder apologies necessary. Most of the young couples were really cute.

Dear James: I think you've put your finger on it. The Gay Pride Parade is now a Recession Special for people looking to have fun in public, as long as you don't buy the $9 drinks at the booths.
