I'm back from Bellingham's 2nd annual Gay Pride Parade, and what a wonderful day it was. The weather was perfect: warm and sunny, but not too hot.

We assembled at Bellingham High School, and I stripped down to my skivvies and had people paint my body day-glo with finger paint (I supplied rubber gloves to keep hands clean). It was really tribal, and I had fun (even if a drag queen did graffiti on my back... ;-)

I walked with the Faeries... Whoretense wore a fabulous flower print mini dress and her dog Sadie walked too, [livejournal.com profile] teledildonix in chaps, Rick in a most amazing pair of metal mesh and leather wings, Bruce in his bow tie, and even Ted in his wheelchair!

We marched to the Depot Market, and we even had bible-worshipping protesters along the route this year! We've arrived! (Last year, we just got ignored.)

And me, once again I debuted a new Scruffy Rumbler outfit, a skirt made only of neckties! I was amazing. Lots of people took pictures of me. And I got cruised by a really cute guy in the marching band. *sigh* If only I had been able to give him my card :-(

I'll post/link pictures as soon as they're available!

UPDATE: Photos of Bellingham RadFaes from Faces of Bellingham:




I never did blog this video, and I just came across it again, so better late than never (4 months later). I give you: Bellingham's First Gay Pride Parade, July 15, 2007. (I am interviewed at around 00:35 -- in a Fabulous Scruffy Rumbler Original -- and appear again at about 03:20, walking next to the incomparable Whoretense's Apocolypticop car!)
