the rubbers

At Greensboro Pride, Cone Health gave us some condoms, lube, and a drink koozie. They even offered PrEP.

What, am I 19 again? j/k

No, I’m not joking about condoms. Those things saved a lot of lives in the deadly 80’s, though I lost many of my friends anyway. PeEP did not exist then. If you got AIDS, you could be dead from within a few weeks to some months. A few made it for a few years.

Many places, especially the nightclubs, had fishbowls full of condoms all for free.

orange pride

I’m not into corporate or political gaywashing, but I could use this shirt. 🏳️‍🌈

It’s worth it for the clamps alone. I mean pliers.

old sunglasses

I found some old sunglasses in a drawer tonight. I realized they were the same ones I wore to Pride in Carrboro in 1991 (30 years ago). I probably bought them about 1986, so maybe they are 35 years old. They are now back in service.

firefox pride themes

Firefox has Pride themes.

These are sweet. I don’t use themes, though. I must have a flat grey/black/white colorless desktop browser. If I used themes, I’d use one of these.

At the bottom of the page, there are backgrounds for Zoom and things.

pride music

The music gets good during Pride month. Enjoying. I have a couple of days off to play.
