We don’t know about you, but over here we’re still pulling ourselves together after last weekend’s National Equality March in D.C.! We never knew that living history could be so much like just living our lives!
The numbers are still coming in, but it appears that anywhere from 17 to 250,000 gay people just like us descended on our nation’s capitol. In order to get a better sense of all that we gained from this public demonstration of gay solidarity, we must first take stock of all that was left behind.
If any of the following items belong to you, please let us know…
- One oven mitt, a baker’s dozen of vegan honey butter croissants
- One tear-stained copy of Khalil Gibran’s “Sand and Foam”
- One unfinished sign reading “Gays Will Not Rest Until”
- Kim Cattrall
“Who’s here for Cindy’s alternative lifestyle affirmation ceremony?!”
- Nineteen handfuls of glitter
- Nineteen copies of Mariah Carey’s Glitter on Blu-Ray
- 165 iPhones, 11 complete sets of Crate & Barrel mixing bowls, and 47 pairs of 2(x)ist underwear
- One copy of Socialist Protest Chants inscribed “This book belongs to Josh!”
- Handwritten notes for Lady Gaga’s groundbreaking (and ear-shattering) speech
Blue means scream, green means grass.
- The shadow of Cleve Jones, predicting 6 more weeks of gay winter
- Something about Maine
- Abandoned HOPE and loose CHANGE
- Joe Solmonese’s toupette
He might not be able to drive a movement, but he sure can drive a clutch!
Incidentally, there are still loads of baby dykes lounging on the lawn of the Capitol Building, waiting to find (or in some cases, lose) their nascent identities. And can someone please come claim Lady Gaga? She’s still talking…
