summer finally showed this last weekend with impeccable timing. last year's gay pride festivities were overcast and rainy, and it's never advisable to dampen a tranny. thank god we made it to sunny and 80 degrees. it was perfect for a Pre-Pride Pool Party a la Pond. i love it when people look good; when they actually wear what they wear. if you can do that, the clothes don't really matter. so, it goes without saying, that i ADORE it when what they wear happens to be next to nothing.
my friends showed up in unpredictable poolside garb; fabulous heels, roller skates, silky robes, short, short short-shorts (trust me, the repetition is necessary). it was amazing and perfect. the norm is a snooze. lose the board shorts and t-shirt, and make an attempt to stand out in some way. summer's here, people. put it on.
