I'm writing this at home as "pride " parade is going on.
I've marched in many past CSW parades's with my Transgender contingents.
the parade --filled with commercial and 'religous' entries, very feww political ones,
and the to-get-in 'festival' [plus double inflated prices for everything you eat and drink], and has-been 'entertainers' isn't worth it.
San Francisco's is much bigger and better and charges only $ 3.00 to enter.
Instead of Love & Equality, CSW seems to promote GREED, HYPER-CONSUMERISM, AND ELITISM of upper-class, white gay men, with all others in 'LBGT' only after thoughts [just another sucker to have their wallets and purses emptied by CSW organizers].
