It was a momentous afternoon, spent laughing with strangers as we passed around cameras and flags and stories. I think the only reason we could even get this close to the entrance is that it was Friday afternoon and many people were still at work.
I'm now a bit conflicted. My honeyboo is back at home, and I won't be attending Pride celebrations on either coast (for a good reason - check back next post). I hate to miss out on the massive celebrations about to happen, but I remind myself that I was there - I am here - for a little slice of it. I'm sure the party will still be going by the time I return to the left coast.

Thought this postcard might give you some ideas for your new + improved dating game - any action yet? Good luck...
SO- here I am at [school]. Eek. I'm doing the LGBC fwsp [Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual Center work study]. Eek. I'm leaning towards a women's studies major with a queer emphasis. Eek. I love my little cubicle of a room, but feel rather alone on the outside. T. told me there are some cool 1st years. We'll see.
Love + back rubs to you...send me postcards! (I can't find all the shit i usually put on my walls.) SEV
Ugh - I just sat here deciding whether to redact this silly postcard, since my mom is in the other room and will likely be the first to read it. hell, we just went to see Fun Home together, I think she can deal.
My favorite part of the postcard is the silly doodle by the stamp:
(American flags make me want to spew ideological rhetoric. Excuse the dribble.)"
SEV and I exchanged correspondence for many years after college and I always loved her droll humor.
Happy Pride to all!
