Well, it’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since I met in Tompkins Park for my first NYC Drag March. I was shamefully under dressed and naive about the powerful impact it would have on me. Nor could I have guessed that three years later I would return to screen the film and march again -properly adorned in a rubber wig – on the same night gay marriage was legalized in New York State. And now here we are, another two years later, with DOMA and Prop 8 overturned on the eve of what is sure to be another extra celebratory Pride in NYC. In honour of all these achievements, and tonight’s sure to be splendid Drag March to the Stonewall Inn, I share with you the 2008 Drag March scene from Beyond Gay. It’s one of my all time favorite memories and most definitely one of my favorite scenes in the film. My love and gratitude to Gilbert Baker, Hucklefaery ken, and all the other drag marchers, have a fabulous Pride, and Thank-You, Thank -You, Thank-You for memories I will cherish always. I will be in Victoria BC for the inaugural Reel Queer Film Festival this weekend, sharing the whole film with with our LGBT family on Vancouver Island Sunday night. Have a great weekend, Happy Canada Day and Happy Pride!
