Purple Hotpants, Here I Come!

I really enjoyed the Pride Parade. (The ensuing funnel-cake related mosh pit; not so much.) I wasn't expecting to find the whole thing so moving, nor did I expect to see such a large group of people in such uniformly high spirits. I discovered that the only people with large, elaborate floats were corporations like Wells Fargo and Macy's. Every other contingent-- and there were many rather obscure groups in attendance-- was just a few people carrying signs. I was left with the thought, "AVEN could SO totally do this!" And there was, indeed, some talk of marching next year. With the information that people don't have to be all that pimped out (although with enough prep, we certianly could be), I hope that people will want to get ready for the 2009 parade! That would really be the occurance of a lifetime (until we start doing it every year)! I'd like to think people would even come in from other places, as it would really be a watershed moment for asexuality. When would we get started...January? It would be cool to have some kind of theme...

Seriously, sign me up! I'd be willing to fly in from wherever I'm living at the moment!

purple hotpants would go rather nicely with your sweet asexy tank. although I would understand if you wanted to make a new one for the Big March. I had loads of fun yesterday (mosh pits aside), largely thanks to you and David, so gratsi on that point!
