The last Sunday in June

Click here to see it larger.

What it is:

Four photos, ranging from 2.5 x 3.5 inches to 3.5 x 4.75 inches.

What I know about it:

All undated and unidentified, except the one top left.  That one is from a bunch of vacation photos I have of these two ladies traveling around France.  This one (or, more precisely a duplicate copy of this one) is labeled Two happy wanderers on the Esplanade at Nice.  A different Nice photo is labeled May 24, but no year.  The shorter one is identified in other photos as Hazel.  (I’ll post more of them later.)

Gay Pride celebrations happen at different times around the world, but here in San Francisco, the big parade is held every year on the last Sunday in June.  With hundreds of thousands of people in attendance, it is the largest LGBT parade, and one of the largest regular parades of any kind, in the country.   Now, I realize the photos above are mostly unlabeled and out of context, so I really have no way of knowing what these people were to each other, or at what point along the Kinsey Scale they fell, but I’ve selected them anyway to represent the spirit of the day, and I’m posting them in honor of the day’s celebrations.  And now I’m headed out to enjoy the parade.  🙂

  1. Happy Pride, dear. When I started going, my coworkers used to check everyone’s face Monday morning after the parade. Anyone with a sunburn was queer.

    • Same to you! LOL, yes, I remember it well. I’d like to think there’s been some progress. If nothing else, time has passed, because goodness, everybody seemed so young this year.

  2. I love raising kids in a time when it absolutely doesn’t matter what the relationships of those couples are to each other, because love is love, fun is fun, and kindred spirits are hard enough to come by that you have to grab on and hold tight!

    Happy Pride, gorgeous!
