OC Pride is More Than Just Gay Days in Anaheim

Did you know we had an OC Pride event this year? Yeah me neither. They really need to get the word out a little more. Finally there is an official event in OC for LGBT pride and I missed the damn thing. Poor Gay Days in Anaheim has been carrying the unofficial OC Pride torch for so long it seemed likely we should just officially call it OC Gay Pride and get it over with.

Anyway! I am just a wee bit irritated about the complete lack of visibility for the event. Maybe the organizers (listen up boys) should have reached our to their popular queer friendly community blogs (not unlike this one) and let them know it was even happening. Also, lets be real, if we’re gonna have OC Pride shouldn’t we be having it in Laguna Beach? Why Irvine? Oh well, here’s hoping there will be one next year and here’s hoping they actually, you know, tell people about it!

Did you know there was an OC Pride Picnic this year? If so, did you go?

    Who knew OC had a Gay Pride Day? And I agree…..Laguna….NOT Irvine. Aren’t Gay Days at Disneyland coming up?? I’d like to be able to actually go to the dance club this year. Would be awesome if the held it in the Hollywood Backlot like they have done for New Years Eve!

    I did not know this! But then I didn’t know anything about gay days either. It seems I’m really out of the loop.
