non-dominant hand drawing 06/27/2015

This day was Pink Saturday which used to be hosted by Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, but last year they said they were no longer hosting it because of all the violence that escalated in recent years including the most recent attack on one of their own Sisters. It is completely understandable. I was there to perform with my group and these are images of the incredibly full Bart train ride, as well as a performance. I only went to the civic center activities, but I remember going to the dyke march when I was invited by my lesbian friends in 1996 or 1997 which started in Dolores Park. I only went once because I felt out of place and rightly so. It really felt like a family reunion back then, and I was like someone’s second cousin twice removed. I felt that it was their time and space to celebrate and party and come together… Plus I just don’t drink alcohol.
