Pride (In the name of love).
I was walkin’ through tha woods one daaaaaaaaay.
Oh hey guys what’s up didn’t see ya there.
Look what I can do.
Stashing my purse.
It was fun to just be hanging out here waiting for the big beginning I love this lush street it is magical and it was a freakfest and we were superstaaaaaaaahs!
What a great backdrop.
Nice Spice girls pose Lauren!
April won for best accessories and makeup.
The anticipation adrenaline was out of control. I couldn’t stop dancing. Colleague had to tell me to chill a couple times hah. Conserve energy. For what? This is it! I have tons of energy I don’t need to save any.
This is the act we had to follow. I shoulda jumped in!
That was awesome. Did you feel like Ghostbusters Shasha?
Barb was great with these too.
Got jostled quite a bit. It was hilarious. I turned some wipe-outs in to dance poses/dance moves. Surfing was one I did a lot.
Then we would die laughing for a bit. I laughed and screamed and talked so much my face hurt by the end of the day/night. Pride Walk of Shame got a lot of laughs from my compadres as we were joining the leagues of the mob at Yonge.
Baby laughs a lot.
Kiebler raver elves. What’s the password man!
Ooh sexy times.
I saw this go down. Such a positive and happy day. Everyone was bubbly and free spirited fancy free.
How can this not make you smile?
I am sure colleague enjoyed himself this day.
Awesome okay you win. Haha me in the BG.
Bye have a nice adventure.
They were capturing my butt which is ridonkulous. Butt Pride 2012.
Had to remember those were not actually stripper poles but makeshift ones. They held true though and only a couple umbrellas went inside out from the wind at one point which was hilarious.
Those are NDP heavyweights; NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Parkdale-HighPark rep Peggy Nash.
Can you tell those were my colleague’s notes like I could possibly know that ahaha.
We look like a miniature strip club haha.
And our pictures are all over the internets too. Felt like Jem and the Holograms.
We went bananas dancing and dancing and ahhh. Same five songs over and over again I’d call out PLACES EVERYBODY as a joke cos we had no defined place, it was dance everywhere and anywhere.
Just people everywhere. Cray. Super duper awesome cray.
Shasha sprayed us a lot too to cool us down. That’s why my hair looked disgusting. Oh well.
Anyone have crowd phobia anxiety? Basically everyone on the internet right?
I’ll protect you citizens of Toronto!
Fun for the whole family!
People were scared, others embraced. But it’s only just mist it doesn’t slosh or soak you at all.
I don’t think I can never not be a part of something like this again.
Popo said we couldn’t spray anymore, “that’s when they told him to shut off the water because it was spiked with Vanilla. Vanilla is an organic substance (at least Shasha’s is organically certified)…parade marshalls however were asserting it was spiked with alcohol.”
Nice arc bro.
We had a cookie bodyguard on deck for protection from wipe outs. Now my new hairstylist!
Bech I love doing these stunts with you. We saw lots of old potato best friend toilet paper versions of us on our fantastic gay voyage. We are like Romy and Michelle + Muriel’s wedding + Thelma and Louise.
Baha that guy’s face. Dude, blink much?
Mmm babe pile. I’d crowd surf in to that.
Too bad it’s racist to do Tiger Lily now, didn’t get the memo? I am on the fence about it personally because I associate it with Disney Peter Pan but I’m not native so it’s not my place to say it. I just think it’s sexy and have always had a thing for Tiger Lily which manifested into an Asian culture fetish (kawaii, harajuku, hello kitty) so, so, I dunno.
Passing out cookies. Yum. Starving.
Score! Look that bag of cookies is crowd surfing!
Is that a protest?
Nevermind that Bum Bum Lauren is out of the gates.
Haha I love it.
Just absolute mayhem. Such a Raymi day.
Uh oh it’s RAMBO Raymbo.
Oh this time she’s just here to dance.
My eye was running mascara like cray and it stung. I found these shades on the float they were tossed on as well as a few other pairs. #Groundscore!
Did you catch us on tv?
Sweeeeeeeeeeeet shot. It’s our Beatles moment.
YES!!!!!!! Now that’s the ticket.
And that. Too bad that chick is hatin’ on it though.
Go Canada. On Canada Day to boot (aboot) one of many many reasons why our nation is the tits.
There’s my fav inside out umbrella. Shasha fixed it for us later. This pic is amazing.
Look how top dog that girl is. You do you girl you’re wicked.
Haha this was like fantasy boudoir party of one for THOUSANDS IN PUBLIC. I went with it.
We all did and our efforts were appreciated.
Noooo. When it was over we were like MORE MORE MORE MORE!!
We were wiped out but still up for a party. And that we did.
Putting this on your tumblr, bechnique.
Blues Brothers Version 2.0
We did it guys.
Then I pantsed Bech’s top and we got a good pic out of it but I deleted cos homie don’t play that way.
Here it comes look at my hand!
