Notes on pridefest--

Well, Austin's Pride Festival is tomorrow, at 15th and Trinity in Waterloo Park. On the one hand, yay! Should be a neat event.

On the other hand, for as diverse a clan as we are, and as far from stereotype *most* of the broad spectrum of non-straight people I hang out with is, I'm just slightly saddened that the primary sponsors of the event are Bacardi (or was it Macardi?) and a personal lubricant company.

Money's money, really, but it seems reductionist, somehow. We should have snookered Central Market into it.

Gay Pride: Sponsored by beer, liquor, and lube. That's the reductionist angle.

*feigned sigh*

Eh..there's a lot of just gay-friendly businesses that are there, and it's only that the outer fencing has the "booze, beer and lube" sponsorship banners that bothers me. Inside, well, I'm easily bothered, but it looks like a nice place so far :)

In Austin, all free events are sponsored at least in part by booze.

Well, that's fair.
