Gay Thursday - 5/19
This week on Gay Thursday, a notable collection of transgendered and similarly identity challenged people showed up near movie theaters in their most outrageous Pride Parade costumes.
Fights between people with brightly colored swords happened often, though police largely ignored these gay duels. The street parties lasted well into the night, then at midnight the streets slowly began to clear.
