Musings on Life for the Queerly Inclined

Last night I had a crisis on my hands.  I mean a full-fledged disaster.  It was like running out of glitter.  Okay, not that bad.  What to wear for dyke march?  The question hung over me, drenching me in desperation and doom.  The blue jeans short shorts?  Or the pink jeans shorter shorts?  These are the questions that keep me awake at night, people!

Keep in mind, pride weekend is a two day affair: Saturday is dyke march; the parade is on Sunday.  There are multiple after-party opportunities following both.  Gotta figure out what fabulousness I’m gonna wear for each event.

Sequins are gonna happen.  I mean, duh, that’s pretty much a given.  I decided on a silver sequin top (ya know those items of clothing that toe the line between a shirt and a dress so you besta wear something underneath them?  ya, that), with the pink shorts, a pink chunky belt, and pink sneakers.

If you’re gonna be at Chicago dyke march, come say hey!  I’m gonna march with FFICA: Fierce Femmes in Chicagoland Area.  We have a huge red velvet banner–yeah, we’re keepin’ it classy–that says “femmes” on it in red and pink sequins and white lace.  Needless to say, we won’t be hard to miss.  I helped make the banner, so you should check out my fancy cursive lettering in red sequined fabric.  Holla!

  1. 2 lines in and I was already thinking of the hashtag #femmeproblems. I totally sympathize, sister. Hope you had fun wrapped in that gloriously glittery banner.

    • Oh I did. However, my comfort level on the train to/from dyke march and my comfort level once there were completely different things (and therefore very memorable). I’ve been thinking of writing a post about casual street harassment–the “I’m not overtly harming you, I’m just staring at you in a menacing way” variety–but I’m not sure exactly what I wanna say. Short shorts and silver sequins definitely attracted more negative attention (big surprise).
