Halloween : The Gayest Holiday of the Year
I was in San Francisco a number of years back for Halloween and oh ma gawd, I couldn't believe what happened in the Castro that night. Actually, the costumes and gaiety began way before the sun went down. There were herds of men dressed up like Celine Dion with the Heart of the Ocean (this was right after Titanic won the Oscar), squads of fagalicious cheerleaders stopping traffic on Market (not a good idea!) to do an impromptu pyramid and cheer (the standard: "We're here, we're queer, we like it in the bum so get used to it dumb dumb.")
What are you dressing up as for Halloween this year? Feel free to steal Dipstick's idea. Here she is in her costume. You like?
Whatever you do, remember to brush your teeth before going to bed (even if you're sleeping with candy under your pillow or within arm's reach), be nice to teenagers who come to your front door in masks (they usually have eggs with them for meanies) and vote for Barack Obama on Tuesday!
Happy Halloween from Lipstick & Dipstick!
