    Welp, the mental image of a localized volcano erupting queer lava alligators into same sex marriage ceremony being held in a bathroom is gunna stick with me awhile.

    Like… were they even invited? Were they booked as entertainment for the reception? Are they single? So many questions!

      I wish I could give you an award for finding the silver lining in that

        I mean just think of how fun it could be! Gay trans lavatory lava gators!

        Maybe they take bookings…

          I lived in New York for the last 26 years, I’ve just spent the last six months in Florida. I am obviously trying to make the best of my situation. May atheist God have mercy on my rainbow soul.

          I’m also very drunk and high right now, so give me a m break. I’m in the middle of a Downton Abbey binge. And a bottle of Jim Beam. A big bottle. In several types of pharmaceutical weed. At least that’s kind of legal here.

            Oof… Sounds rough. Florida sounds like hell to my delicate West Coast gay trans Canadian sensibilities. Weed do be legal here and I recommend a visit at some point as supposedly we got some fantastic bud.

            Also Downton Abbey is fantastic. Maggie Smith is a vampire I swear but whatever blood she sups is worth it for her character acting. Seriously… She doesn’t age.

              For what it’s worth, I’m doing literally everything I can to get back to New York as soon as possible. I’m very grateful that at least medical weed is legal here, and, for what it’s worth, the pharmaceutical weed is at least pharmaceutical grade. And I have a private media server that’s Chuck full of all of the private media I need.

              But I got to get the fuck out of the state. I grew up here when I was a kid, and it’s only gotten worse. It’s just as bad as we’ve all heard, and I need to get the fuck out of here.

              I will say that, also, for what it’s worth, Orlando seems to be kind of a safe Haven, but only as safe as anywhere in Florida could be. Being queer here isn’t terrible, but I’d advise anyone else who is also here to get the fuck out while they can. There been Nazis here.

                Yeah, just traveling the States is a scary prospect for Canadians without going to the mecca of the emerging American Nazi movement. Even nearby Seattle seems uptight and queerphobic by the local standard.

                I am hoping we remain a stronghold of queer culture and left wing sensibilities. We are fighting on our own soil and the looming election is looking kind of Conservative centric. Our Prairie provinces like to import their phobia fodder directly from the states these days.
