Gay Pride month in San Francisco has started. This is when the entire city dresses up in our rainbow colors and the TV stations play movies and hold discussion panels on topics ‘of substance’ and ‘import’ on being gay. Visitors from all over the world come to celebrate their lives, as do we who live here. And gay couples blatantly display acts of love and caring for one another in the streets. Oh My!!!
Back in the 80’s I used to be on the board of directors for the Pride Foundation. We were the group that coordinated the development of the gay flag for our community. I remember the first year we started placing the flags up and down Market Street for our parade. What a feeling of freedom to see them. I friend of mine and I were trying to get the flags attached to light poles along the route before the parade started that first year when he said to me, “We may never get these down again.” And now to note the rainbow symbol spread all over the world is something that just seems incredible to me. No, Michael, I doubt these flags will ever be brought down again.
One of the best shows in the Gay Parade for San Francisco begins the parade. ‘Dykes on Bikes.’ Butch Wives with horse power!!! I think every butch wife should try a motor cycle at least once in their life. You can do it – put that strong conviction of yours to the test and get one. I would recommend you start off with a ‘smallish’ size first to see if you really feel okay with it. I bet the first time you open up the accelerator and feel the power between your legs……….well, I’m just sayin’!!!!!
I bought a motor scooter one time. It was Italian (Aprilia Scarabeo) and could make it up the hills of San Francisco with no problem at all. However, when I took my wife for rides on it she invariably would be leaning left when I was leaning right. Not good form on a motorized vehicle, open to the air on all sides. And she told me my driving scares her to death in a car, so you can imagine her fear on a cycle! This from a lady who drives looking sideways into people’s houses along the street, searching for new decorating tips!
Butch Wife Tip #15
Its Gay Pride month – be proud of who and what you are, and remember you’re okay just the way you are. And if your wife has trepidations about getting a motorcycle, take heed because if she leans left while you’re turning right it won’t be a good look for anyone. I’m just sayin’……………
