BAS Pride 2013: Remembering Stonewall; 10th Annual Trans March; Getting Steamed at The Powerhouse
The weekend is upon us and if you managed to get to schnackered last night at Nightlife at the Academy, Aunt Charlie’s or any of the other kick-off parties that peppered the city last night, then you have plenty o’ options this eve.
The first of the weekend’s marches is, of course, the 10th Annual San Francisco Trans March which gets going at 3 p.m. over in Dolores. Prior to that there is a free Youth and Elder Brunch. A party for the under-agers will be held at the LGBT Center afterwards while a 21+ one will be over at El Río.
Faetopia is hosting its closing night gala with Chastity Belle’s tribute to Judy Garland’s landmark concert at Carnegie Hall while also commemorating the most important significance of today which is the anniversary of the riots at the Stonewall Inn in 1969. There is a suggested donation but no one is turned away for lack of funds.
And should all this be too outdoorsy and tame for you, Walter Gómez is hosting his monthly Steam, if you ever felt as though you missed out on the good old bathhouse days. This Pride edition does come in at the steep cover of $8, but it goes to charity and once you are in, there is plenty of cheap courage to compensate. There is a broad menu of choices ranging from $2 shots to $3-$4 Ultimat vodka or Pátron tequila cocktails. That courage may come in handy as that if you enter their wet towel contest you make come out winning $100 plus tickets to Juanita More’s annual poolside debauchery on Sunday.
