Vancouver Pride 2008: Parade, festival, go-go cruise a success

Sunday's finale of Vancovuer Pride 2008 was dandy, the parade drew a huge crowd - about the same size as Seattle's Pride, come to think of it.

The parade was a bit long and the floats pretty much all looked the same (glittery stuff, dancing shirtless boys, loud club music, etc.), but it was still a lot of fun. The post-parade festival was a tad lackluster, though it gave everyone something to do under the bright sun.

My friends and I boarded the Cruisy T Go-Go Cruise and had a blast with about 200-300 other gay boys, most of them with no shirts and ready to misbehave (um, I saw something in the men's bathroom that I shouldn''t have, and we'll leave it like that). It was a four hour-long cruise through the Georgia Strait and around the city of Vancouver - quite beautiful.

I'm going to Absolut Spa (at Century Plaza) this afternoon for a post-Pride pampering and then headed back to Seattle. It's been real, it's been fun, it's been real fun here at Vancouver Pride 2008!
