Under sunny skies, the LGBT community and their friends turned out to see 200 contingents march down Market St in San Francisco in the 41st annual LGBT Pride Parade. Marching for the first time was Hell Hole SF, one of about 8 new contingents in the parade this year. Marching with the Leather Community, the Hell Hole guys were very visible in their red and their Model T Station Wagon from about 1927 was a big hit. They waved to the crowd as they went by and some of the onlookers “got it”, that the wave was really a sign of fisting. Everyone had a great time. More Photos.

Marching in the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade is a whole lot of fun, but it does mean getting up early to be down in the assembly area, well before the parade starts. It also means you don’t get to see much of the parade, but the enthusiastic crowds more than make up for that.
This was my first time marching with the Leather Contingent and they are a great group to be with. While the mainstream media continues to ignore us, everyone else was very welcoming. From the cute girls giving free hugs to the hot guys giving a thumbs up, the crowds showed their love for Leather.
Thanks to everyone who came out to cheer on the marchers and also to those who took videos and posted them on YouTube. To see more photos of the Leather Contingent and a few photos at the festival, click here.
Hot men, friends and the helpful staff at Mr S were on hand for the Grand Opening Party of their new 12,000 sq foot Locker Room space (where Madame S used to be). If you missed the party, you can see what you missed by clicking here.
Pride, Power, Passion, Purpose – with these words, the LA Pride Parade kicked off with hundreds of contingents marching down Santa Monica Blvd., in West Hollywood. More photos of the parade>
FistFest 2011 was held at the Cathedral City Boys Club (CCBC) and was well attended. Guys from across the country and from all over California were there to be with friends and make new ones. More.
“Gay Sera, Syrah!” – The Russian River Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were the organizers of the 2011 Sonoma County Pride Parade and Festival in Guerneville. Even more importantly, the Sisters used their “pull” to get the rain to stop just in time for the parade. The sun even came out later during the festival, so it really was a fabulous event.
