Roller Derby Is So Gay

St. Louis annual Pridefest and Parade was yesterday, as in much of the world. It's my annual photographic candy store. Everyone is welcoming, friendly and loves to have their picture taken. I only got hit on twice - me, a 59 year old straight guy. I don't know whether to be glad or disappointed .

Here's a portrait of a member of the St. Louis Arch Rivals, our women's roller derby team. I've never been to a match and I could just kick myself.

Mrs. C and I arrive in Toronto tonight but I'm sure there will be something more from the parade tomorrow.

Well I'm not surprised you got hit on B.!( I THINK I'd look at it as a compliment :) You didn't let us down today. We are going to have to see many more from this event so keep them coming.

I've never understood why some people are so hateful towards gays and lesbians. Thanks for this post and the funny picture.
