Since we all acknowledge the verified superiority of our master city, let's discuss issues and events regarding our beloved kingdom.

Pride is this weekend ?  Who is going ?  I am NOT.    :D

To paraphrase Luke Skywalker...  if there's a bright shining center of the country, I'm in the city it's farthest from.

Both geographically and culturally, I'm a loooong way from Toronto.  We don't have a Pride parade, but we do have rainbow-painted crosswalks at one intersection.  I'll celebrate Pride by using the rainbow crosswalk as I walk downtown to enjoy some Happy Hour fun after work today.

Modified post.  I can't really make a thread but I will talk about provincial gayfolk.

---

Gay folks who grow up in small towns are a special and under-heralded breed.  When I emerged from my adolescent homophobia and became an ally, I quickly discovered the lush flower bed of gay hoser culture.

I remember the gay hosers who came out to themselves in the 1970s.  Including:

-Butch acting Waynes (ie. from Wayne's World) who had zero affectation at all. 
-Sensitive lads who couldn't harm a feather fending for themselves against the pervasive threat of assault using only their wits
-The Dr. Frank N. Furter clone who attended small-town high and never got a mark on him, but maybe got a Mark on him.
-Future poets, actors, farmtown lesbians... all moths to a flame...

And they all come to Toronto for Pride
