I'm recovering from marching in today's #Dallas #Pride parade. For the first time ever, it was held in June (previously September, when a lot of #Texas #Queer history happened), in the Texas State Fairgrounds (previously our #gayborhood), and televised by hetro media. Participation was massive, perhaps because of the #Stonewall anniversary, perhaps from a need to show #solidarity in the face of recent attacks against #Trans people.
Enjoy some parade prep photos.
Potential #spoilers for the #movie “#Rocketman”.
Rocketman is a #surreal #musical #fantasy disguised as a standard rise-fall-redemption #rock-n-roll biography. It’s less about the fractured, unreliable memories of #singer Elton John than a grand visual metaphor for how he feels about everything he”s survived. His songs are transposed on events that occurred before they were written. He meets his past self, communes with the dead, and levitates crowds. He flies —and so does this #film.
Stonewall mural, trans, +
"The 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots has been marked by activists in Texas with a new mural, painted to honour the transgender women who were key figures in the protests.
The new mural, which is the largest mural in the US, is on the side of a building in Cedar Springs, Dallas."
@porsupah The mural that Brian Kenny and #Arttitude painted at "ground zero" of our #gayborhood came out beautifully. Since the news article showed the work in progress, I thought everyone might enjoy a few shots of the finished piece.
So the #homophobic (among other things) president of #Brasil is coming to my #gayborhood in #Dallas today. By invitation. There’s been a lot of selectively and strategically deployed #Southern Manners on display. Talk of how we should “hear the other side” of someone who’d rather I didn’t exist, as if there’s some sort of middle ground on that.
Incongruously, mind keeps snapping back to that 18-month period a few years ago when #queer men were getting picked off every other weekend, right here.
(2 of 2) Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, the new #Latino Arts Project museum held its grand opening with the exhibit "#Mexican Modern #Sculpture: A Study of the #Artists". Located in the #Dallas Design District, near what I used to know as the "photographers' ghetto", this chic little space quickly filled up with well-wishers, the curious, and the nostalgic. They managed to snag some very impressive pieces for their inaugural exhibit.

Eco-Nerds -- Advice PlZ!
@deme Yeah ... unfortunate common name there, but they do brighten up the place, and NASA says they filter airborne toxins, so I’m a fan now. Would plant again. ;)
