(This one was written for CL’s Pride Issue, which comes out every year the week of St. Pete Pride, the largest annual LGBT celebration in the southeast.)
It’s hot. It’s humid. There’s an 80 percent chance of weekend thunderstorms, and a 100 percent chance of uninhibited
St. Pete Pride must be upon us.
Longtime CL readers might recognize this as the time and space in which I traditionally wax rhapsodic about how fun, exciting and inspiring is the ’Burg’s LGBT pride festival, before going on to entreat straight people everywhere to take part in this annual celebration of both unity and self.
Meh. Not this year, thanks.
