A tale of two very different jersey style gay prides

commentary.

Blowing kisses at women on motorcycles and cheering for men in tutus is a New Jersey Gay Pride tradition I almost never miss. We get there early, set up our chairs and blankets, inventory the picnic baskets and do what we must to make sure the drinks stay cold while we go take our place on Grand Avenue in Asbury Park. We wave our flags for the parade, cheer on PFLAG, the truck full of free condoms and the growing contingent of corporate supporters. We meander the festival, grab a fried Oreo®, do a little shopping, and return to our blanket in a sea of out and proud with our "ain't it great to be gay" smiles.
