We were too late for the Prime Minister's speech, she was off with the Swedish Prime Minister to a nature sanctuary later in the afternoon. Mayor Dick Hubbard kissed a drag queen, trying to make up for his naive gaffe over signing a letter opposing the civil union bill and being nasty to gay parents in general. I'm not sure whether he succeeded in righting past wrongs.
Highlight of the afternoon was, apart from getting another date (by txt, no less!) with my fuck buddy whom I hadn't seen for a while, and a community karaoke country singing event with the Topp Twins. I asked the Toppies whether they would consider running for Mayor again next time, and their answer came in the form of what they told Mayor Hubbard:
Watch out for your job next time, Dick!In all, it was a colourful and relaxed afternoon in the park, gorgeous boys and gorgeous men, hell, even gorgeous drag queens: big shout out to Miss PollyFilla, who got the crowds rocking and dancing like Cher, and the scary black-clad one wearing an "Enough is Enough" t-shirt.
