We've heard the S.F. Pride Parade criticized. That it's too commercial seems to be agreed upon. And we vividly remember when no one would ever say that about "Gay Day." However, we must remind everyone that San Francisco's Pride Parade (theme this year: "Forty and Fabulous") is the biggest and the best in the world. It is, we swear! (Except on years when N.Y.C. really gets its act together.) Maybe beer, vodka, soda pop, more vodka, and real estate sponsorships can kill your queer buzz, but consider this: We have been to the Paris Pride Parade. La Marche des Fiertés LGBT de Paris is large, awesome, and betrannied, there in the Place de la Bastille. But even Gay Paree can't match our gay parade take our word for it. Welcome, international visitors, to the gayest place on Earth! We're proud of it.
