My 1st Pride Parade

On August 1, 2009, London Boy ceased to be a Pride virgin.

I've always been very curious about the annual Pride march in Manila. Every year, I see the hot guys, drag queens and religious hypocrites in the news, and wondered how it felt to be there.

During my last few months in London, I had a sudden change of heart and decided to enjoy the London gay lifestyle. So off I went to Soho, gay porn shops, gay porn theaters, watched gay plays, went to a bathhouse and the best part, I attended my first Pride parade.

If in Manila PLUs get harassed by religious hypocrites, in Brighton we are welcomed with open arms. The Pride parade is a family event, just look at the grandparents, moms and dads, and little kids. There is no need to justify your lifestyle, no need to be ashamed, no need to hide in your closet.

Grannies, Grandpas, Moms and Dads

Kids and Moms

The proud members of the Gay Police Association

A gay-friendly church ...

... with an interesting question to ask. "Would Jesus Discriminate?"

"The Oldest Gay in the Village"

A gay minister

Gay rights activists



I love sailors!

Vintage-look cute guy matching the Victorian windows

He was so cute, so I looked for him after the parade and had this picture taken ;)

This guy looks Pinoy

Yup, I know what you're looking at!

hey jr! thanks for dropping by.

brighton pride is in august, and london pride is in april.

even if you visit in december, there's still a lot of things you can do. you can watch "priscilla: queen of the desert, the musical". go to soho. go clubbing in G-A-Y and Heaven.
