Gay Pride is one of my favorite days of the year. It's like Christmas or Halloween when you live in West Hollywood. Everyone is celebratory and the energy is positive. If I volunteered to not be on the float at the parade, it meant I could actually go to the parade before work.
I may have had to leave early, but I got to rally with my G.B.F. (gay best friend) and support the LGBT community without wearing white spandex. Score. I also knew that it might add to the positive accord I was trying to build with Lisa if I sucked it up and came to work early. I made money and still had fun, so why not?
