“COME ON! A BUNCH OF LES­BIANS IN BIRKENSTOCKS, HOW CAN IT NOT BE PO­LIT­I­CAL? BUMP­ING INTO YOUR EX, THE ONE YOU SPEND THE EN­TIRE PRIDE TRY­ING TO AVOID, HOW CAN IT NOT BE A FAN­TAS­TIC PARTY?”

TREY AN­THONY “Eye roll. Surely the Take Back The Dyke folks proved there’s enough room and enough gays in this city for Pride to be both.”

SHOLEM KRISHTALKA “Par­ties with­out pol­i­tics are bor­ing. Pol­i­tics with­out par­ties are ex­cru­ci­at­ing.”

FARZANA DOC­TOR

“You think it’d be a party. In another place where it’s über- dan­ger­ous to be queer? Pol­i­tics all the way.”

MAG­GIE CASSELLA “Both. I like to get down and do an im­promptu elec­tric slide, but Pride is ul­ti­mately a cel­e­bra­tion that I keep close to my heart when it comes to civil rights and equal­ity.”

MARCO BERNARDI

“Party is pol­i­tics.”
