A Pride Picture

Chicago's Gay Pride Parade is this Sunday. Cutie-patootie Dan sent over this picture yesterday taken by one of his friends at work, Tracy Poston.

This was taken right outside of her place at Diversey and Pine Grove and it says everything you will ever need to know about the hatemongers at Gay Pride. I love it!



I always say...

"Show me a gay basher and I'll show you a cocksucker."

The only thing better than this picture was the year that I was walking through the parade route with gay punk rocker Jinx Titanic and when we got to the spot with all the hatemongers, Jinx just stopped.

There was a guy standing on a platform with a bullhorn, screaming the usual "God hates fags" bile and Jinx just stood right at his feet, watching him, starting at him, for what seemed like a century.

Finally, the guy stopped his screaming and looked down at Jinx. And Jinx simply said...

"You're fuckin' hot!"

It was the PERFECT response because not only did it shock and offend the hatemonger, it also shut him the Hell up!

Happy Pride, everyone!

And thank you Tracy for letting me post the pic!

How the fuck is it time for Pride already? It's like every year it sneaks up on me like a recurring case of syphilis.

Or so I've been told.

Stephen Rader said...

Mike - Shit! Does that stuff recur?!?! :)

I'll never forget when they had a pride march here. The picture on the front page of the paper the next day showed a hatemonger redneck holding a sign that said, "Burn in hell faggits."

Stephen Rader said...

Whim - Damn! I was afraid I was spelling that word wrong!! :)

Master Aaron said...

And if you can keep the cigar out of his mouth long enough, Mr. T is a great kisser, too. ...or so I've been told... ...have I said too much?...

Stephen Rader said...

Master Aaron - How much do I love that you call him "Mr. T."? And did you know I still have his underwear in my house from when he changed after that Pride Parade in my apartment?

And no, I've never worn them. Sniffed maybe, but never worn.

Master Aaron said...

You could sauté those in some light olive oil and serve them up with a nice Chianti. I'D come to dinner. I'll even entertain, I'll sing, a la Merman, "You must remember thiiiiis. A kiss is just a kiiiiiis. A smile is.....JUST a smahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhLE."

Stephen Rader said...

Master Aaron - Merman singing AS TIME GOES BY just might kill my love for CASABLANCA... or perhaps will deepen my love for the film... it could go either way.

Master Aaron said...

And for the first time....Rader can "go either way." (smile) My work here is finished. I'll check in tomorrow.

Stephen Rader said...

Master Aaron - For the first time?!?!?! Dear, I can go... alright... it's the first time. Geez...

Aaron said...

"have I said too much?... "

I think we'd like to hear MORE, actually! :-)

That first picture is the most amazing thing ever. Why argue with these people when one word says it all?

god, that takes me back to a couple of years ago- when i encountered the same thing during AIDS awareness day. i was working an a communtiy support person at a nonprofit.All those supposedly "Christian" people shouting through loudspeakers about how god hates fags and how AIDS was sent by god. i wanted to kill those fuckers. it still makes me nauseous. wish i'd been able to come up with something clever to say like Jinx!

dirk.mancuso said...

I so wanted to make it to Pride this year, but my employer has other plans for me.

Sighhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Maybe next year...

Michael said...

Wow, and I thought that Jinx story was an urban myth.......I love him even more now.

Stephen Rader said...

yinyang - One word DOES say it all, indeed!

psycho-therapist - The next time someone says that AIDS is God's punishment for fags, just inform them that lesbians are the least susceptible persons to become infected with HIV. So, with the Christian logic that AIDS is God's punishment for fags, that makes lesbians God's chosen people. :)

Dirk - Well, come by Halsted and Roscoe after your shift at work!!! I'm sure I'll be seen in some state of inebriation. :)

Michael - Nope. That Jinx story is THE TRUTH! I was right there and laughed my ass off!!
