In the Mood for… Pride

O HAAY, San Francisco. This weekend is one our beloved city’s most significant, majestic, and celebratory events: SF PRIDE.

With the federal government overturning DOMA on Wednesday, I have a feeling it’s gonna be a good one. In the spirit of Pride, these things:

pride weegee girls at the bar 1946
[Girls at the Bar, 1946, by Weegee.]

pride keith
[Keith Haring and Juan Dubose, 1983, by Andy Warhol.]

pride pit
[There’s a Dyke in the Pit– 1992 Punk Compilation via Outpunk Records. Listen to the whole 7″ here.]

pride twin peaks
[One of my favorite drag moments in TV history: David Duchovny on Twin Peaks.]

pride 1970

pride stone
[Currently reading: Stone Butch Blues by Leslie Feinberg.]

A few of my Instagram shots from the Castro on Wednesday night. We (and the rest of SF) took to the streets to celebrate!

Finally, on Saturday night (that’s June 29!) I’ll be DJ-ing a Pride-themed punk radio show over on Ribbon Around a Bomb at Radio Valencia. Queercore galore, plus our normal offering of kick-ass female-fronted punk. Tune in Saturday night from 10pm-midnight at radiovalencia.fm.

SF’s Screaming Queens of Compton’s.
Joe Brainard- I Remember and pop art.
Genesis Breyer P-Orridge.
Androgynous women.

    I didn’t recognize Duchovny at first. I completely forgot about that episode.
