Hope everybody found a good "q" for ABC Wednesday !

I'd say this person is rather "q"uirky, wouldn't you ?
But he's probably just as normal as you or me -- he probably just likes to have fun, and does what comes natural...

But if you weren't one of the billion people who lined San Francisco's Market Street earlier this year to witness the annual Pride Parade, then let me tell you that you missed out on one heck of a party !

And keep in mind that you don't have to be gay to enjoy the bash (I'm not) -- all you need is an open mind and a sense of humor.   Fancy dress is optional...

Q... Of course!!!

My bet is, if you asked him straight (no pun intended) he would probably tell you "Why, yes, I am queer" without any malice or negative feeling, and a bit of pride. The vast majority of people I've met in the gay community in the San Francisco Bay Area are really, really nice people (which makes me even more sorry about Prop. 8, enuf said ;)

I just came from Claude's blog (in France) and she said she couldn't figure out what to photograph for the letter Q. It's true that in French, it's a little harder ... although "Q" prounounced in French also means "...ss" in French (sorry but you brought it up! ;)

Time for me to log off and get my "Q" to work. Bye for now.

Quirky, yes. I'd say fancy dress shouldn't be optional!

Yes, pretty quirky, I'd say - but a super picture.
We live in Chelsea New York where this sort of thing isn't that unusual........
My clouds with the pink tinge lasted about 3 minutes.........

We crossed the Pride here in Paris, by chance. You've been quite reasonable, because there are much more eccentric persons.

Memories, light the corner....
I used to live on 18th and Castro, so this was my hood, these were my peeps. I miss it up there sometimes. It was wild.

The pride parade must have been something to behold indeed.
