Yay, I’m Gay

It’s Pride Week in my neck of world and to kick it off I rode Bevan’s coattails all the way to the state capital last night to rage at the governor’s mansion.

Unbeknownst to me it’s two thousand degrees in Sacramento in June and I forgot to put on deodorant so I thought it appropriate that the first hand I shook upon entering the manse belonged to someone v. tolerant of dude sweat—former NBA player Jason Collins, the first openly gay athlete to play in any of the four major North American pro sports leagues.

Other LGBTQIA+ movers, shakers and allies in attendance were Governor Gavin Newsom, Senator Scott Wiener, Empress Nicole and the Stuart Milk.

Oh yeah, these studs, too.

Remember when I didn’t wanna be gay?

Friday Night With the First Fam

Bevan and I met Pete Buttigieg, the future first openly LGBTQ+ President of the United States, at a fundraiser at the Regency Ballroom last night. B actually spent much of yesterday afternoon showing Pete’s husband Chasten around San Francisco which means that I spent much of yesterday afternoon fielding giddy text messages containing poorly-angled selfies that brought on hella jealousy cuz Chasten is gonna be one fierce/fab first spouse.
