Well, it was a hot, breezy, humid, crowded day, and the parade was pretty good. One downer: one of those radical, Bible-thumping, protester groups showed up and camped out at the rear of our vendor area. With bullhorns. Ahem. It was the first time I’d encountered this type of hate-monger in person, as opposed to seeing it on TV, and it was disturbing. Most folks just ignored them, but a group of the GLBT parade participant there got to be part of the show, egging them on in a way. Bad vibes.
But, Eola Park is quite nice (swans! real live swans!), and the crowd was good-sized. The Disney carriage was there, drawn by four black Percherons. Very fancy. Thanks to Sheldon who was willing to take a chance on a new writer; enjoy the stories!
Also, GLBT Promo has moi as the featured author of the month, and the interview is here:
Again, thoughtful questions from a professional staff who take their work seriously. Thanks, Jolie and Veronica!
