This year we went hard. And now I’m ready to sleep forever.

En route from Los Angeles. When we had energy.

The next day my friend made it to work and we started off with coffee, a coconut and a serious piece of toast from Trouble Coffee’s new West Oakland location.

We headed back to Oakland for Hella Gay’s Dyke March After Party where I only caught a few photos because it was actually 95 degrees inside.

  1. Okay, so next time I feel the urge to be like “fuck it, getting my credit card, consensually kidnapping my west coast partner in crime, and doing Pride in SF on a whim,” I’m doing it.

  2. It’s actually pretty neat that, although we were in the same city, we went to completely different events because there were JUST THAT MANY OPTIONS. Also I think waaaaaaay in the distance of one of the Dyke march photos you can see some of the Autostraddle Dyke march meetup people, whee!

    Also A+ decision to skip the Corporate TM Parade, the Dyke march is way better/more fun in my opinion. The parade is pretty cool the first time, and it’s neat to see all the excited rainbow people, but seeing it once is really all you need to get the gist that it’s companies advertising themselves and currying favor with the gays.

  3. these photos captured everything excellent about this weekend! somehow me & my squad managed to stay alive until Monday when our collective hangovers hit at around 3PM. we felt very #blessed

  4. Ok so these pictures are like 1000 times more awesome than I thought they’d be with the refrain “bad girls do it well” in this song of unknown origin that is possibly the remix of 3 songs.
    ALSO doggieh in diner had y baby kitteh
