This morning I ran home from church, put some temmporary dye in my hair and then took the train to Cologne to witness the first Christopher Street Day Celebreation of my young queer life.

And oh was it glorious. After meeting with my friend and some People she had met on the Train and taken a liking too (and they are amazing People, she has some good taste) I threw myself into the Party. Seeing the Cologne Cathedral surrounded by pride flags is quite the view. At that Point the only gay Thing on me was a really worn down rainbow wrist band so the first Things I bought were a pride fan and a big panexual pride flag to wrap myself in. Both proved to be good ideas since having a pride flag cape is awesome and the fan came in handy because it got really hot.

Over the next few ours I gradually got gayer and gayer, adding paint on both cheeks, three new wristbands and a ton of Stickers to the Collection. I met a lot of really nice People, got a lot of hugs (the writing on one of my cheecks said “free hugs”), had a Starbucks iced tea which cost more than most of the other Things I bought and had the most fun ever. And although my feet hurt like hell now I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

Thank you to every one who made this experience possible and to my amazing friends, old and new.
