BAS PRIDE 2017: PRIDE IN PICTURES!

Well, queerest Broke-Ass Stuart readership, by now we hope that you have fully recovered form what was likely one of the memorable Pride’s to date.  Though there was no overturning of  homophobic laws set against the backdrop of sweeter days, our current era of darkness has ignited flames of hope and calls to resist.  Not even threats of violence within our own city could damper the fight within.

Of course, this being San Francisco, the original party girl of the Golden West, no fight is complete without play after.  And much, much play there was!  Parties kicked off a week prior and didn’t stop till the rays came poking over the Oakland Hills.

Though we weren’t able to be absolutely everywhere, our Broke-Ass Staff and contributors were on hand to catch the protest and pageantry all over town.  So let us slide back up the rainbow just a little way back to….

PRIDE SUNDAY, JUNE 25TH

#RESIST CONTINGENT, SAN FRANCISCO PRIDE PARADE

The resistance was strong and opened the parade in numbers that held sway over the pageantry for hours.  The Milk Club harkened back to the Proposition 6 days to draw parallels between fascist hate of today and yesteryear.

Stephen Torres - Threadbare-Fact Finder (Editor, San Francisco)

Stephen's early years were spent in a boxcar overlooking downtown Los Angeles. From there he moved around the state with his family before settling under the warm blanket of smog that covers suburban Southern California. Moving around led to his inability to stay in one place for very long, but San Francisco has been reeling him back in with its siren song since 1999.
By trade he pours booze, but likes to think he can write and does so occasionally for the SF Bay Guardian, Bold Italic and 7x7. He also likes to enjoy time spent in old eateries, bars and businesses that, by most standards, would have been condemned a long time ago.
