Pink Saturday in the Castro, June 25

GLBT Pride Parade, June 26

This is yours truly in my "Nobody Knows I'm a Lesbian" tee posing in the Castro Street Muni station in front of the poster for Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City musical. I can now post this photo on facebook.com/talesofthecitymusical to win fabulous prizes.

The Dykes on Bikes are getting ready to lead the parade.

The second group in the parade every year is Mikes on Bikes.

Celebrity Grand Marshal Chaz Bono prepares to roll.

I have a good chat with former Supervisor and current Mayoral candidate Bevan Dufty.

This is Bevan Dufty with Anna Conda on the right and Anna's boyfriend on the left.

Second from the left is Anna Damiani, aide to State Senator Mark Leno.

State Senator Mark Leno. When he was a State Assemblyman, Mr. Leno gave me a Certificate of Recognition for my book Billions of Virgins in Ecstasy.

State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano likes Andy Richter's answer to the question, "What movie title best describes your penis?" Andy says, "Little Miss Sunshine."

Photographer Dan Nicoletta is a wonderful man. He was Harvey Milk's photographer, employee and friend, and has done much to keep Harvey's memory alive.

I asked these Gap Monitors if they could help me with my memory.

Too bad the lady in the picture frame didn't show up too well in this photo.

Back in the Castro, the pink triangle can be seen up on Twin Peaks.

Hooray! See you next year!
