gay day, gay day

Yes, that's right campers, it's queer pride day here in Houston. Not much different than St. Patrick's Day or the Greek Festival except for the social disapproval and corresponding legislation. Barbara and I plan on getting out there and mixing it up with the rest. The queer population is often portrayed as a smaller, intimate subculture in an urban environment. Yet it amazes me every time we foray out to some queer event how few people we know or, for that matter, even recognize.

Other than that, I've started reading The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. Which promises to be delightful.
