Bittersweet Dancing

Castro1

I just got home from the Castro, where there must have been fifty thousand people dancing in the street celebrating Obama's victory. We all knew prop 8 had passed, yet here we are dancing and celebrating. It's such a weird thing, the gay community's ability to dance, drink and celebrate in the face of adversity. It is unique in the human family, I think.

I dunno. I kinda think we should be setting cars on fire in the central valley. But that's just me.

I'm drunk on champagne, my head is spinning. I'm happy, I'm furious and I'm drunk. )I can't sleep but I have to get up for work in six hours.

So I down a Valium with a liter of water and hope for the best.

    It is so sad about proposition 8 passing. The Californians also said no to two alternative energy measures. I'm sorry. The victories around the nation are mixed. In WA, I-1000, Death With Dignity, passed. Careful of alcohol and valium. The alcohol makes it hard to sleep.
    We are getting drunk on wine Friday.
