It’s Saturday the day after the ultimate victory for Marriage Equality in the United States and it’s Pride Weekend in Seattle and it’s RIDICULOUSLY hot and there are ONE ZILLION fun options to celebrate that victory and Pride.

Here’s a FEW for today BUT with a couple warnings!

ONE: It’s freaking HOT AS HADES out there so HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE! And, that means WATER! Plain, non-flavored water is best! Drink LOTS of it today! Especially if you are drinking booze (booze DE-hydrates you) and/or doing any other enhancement drug (even pot, which is also a huge de-hydrater).

TWO: Be safe! Especially if you’re wandering around at night and especially if you’re alone and super especially if you’re dumb enough to wander around alone at night while drunk/high. There are NASTY people out there who want to MUG you! It happened to everyone’s favorite printer, DAN LANE last night who was mugged/shoved to the ground at Broadway/Pike St. BE VERY CAREFUL while celebrating Pride! Try to travel with several people and be aware at all times of surroundings and situations!

THREE: Be safe sexually! This goes for EVERYONE! Booze+Drugs+Joyful Pride+Hot Weather+Presence of Sexy Out of Towners=Lots of Opportunities For Zexy Good Times! Even if you’re on PReP, use condoms with strangers! Lots of NASTY STD’s out there including the disgusting Shigella! (No, not Shangela….) And, for ladies who might hook up with some gents, who wants a surprise pregnancy from a drunk stranger? CONDOMS ARE STILL OUR FRIENDS WHEN IT COMES TO RANDOM DRUNKEN/HIGH SEX!!!!!!

Enough finger wagging! Here’s some options for today/tonight and see ALL of them at our Seattle Gay Scene Pride Guide/Calendar. The major two FREE/Family Friendly events for daytime are obviously the annual Capitol Hill Pride Festival on Broadway and PrideFest in Cal Anderson Park. PLUS, there’s the Dyke March/Rally this evening and two big street parties for grown ups, the Wildrose “Bush Garden” Party and the Purr Block Party.
