“We went and watched the Gay Day parade. The Gay Cops and me got the biggest clap and (laughs). I took photos. Got film (film $6.90, lunch $60). And they had the contingents of Gay Docs and Dykes, the groups from Oklahoma City and Virginia. And the men & youth organization. So sick. The float that got the most attention was the S&M float where the big guys were in leather with keys and everything. All the beauties must’ve been shopping in Soho or out on Fire Island, ‘cause they sure weren’t in this parade. And there were guys in wheelchairs being pushed by their lovers. I’m serious! It looked like Halloween but without the costumes. And they had a Kate Smith record playing.”
