The Pride parade celebrated the wonderful diversity of culture we have in ABQ. From Grandmas suggesting blowing instead of smoking, to happy heteros from Self Serve praising their toys and dissing fake orgasms, everything off the norm was cheered.
Hooray for Native Pride!
During this year's Pride I was mindful of the loss of Matt Bubb, one of the geniuses behind the Albuquerque Dolls. I ran into a photo of him in the art exhibit and just lost it. I didn't learn of his death until months after it happened, and I had not really had a chance to grieve. Since I met him twenty years ago, I've believed he was the most talented actor I've ever known.
