I got an email from Paul from Jestertunes.com saying he wanted to meet up at Pride. He has been a long time reader of my blog and I thought it would be totally fun to meet a reader.
I listened to Keith and the Girl (KATG) as I walked the walk from our hotel to the Bart and from the station to the Civic Center where all of the festivities were going on. For the longest time I was lost in the KATG episode instead of pride and it wasn’t until Paul called me that it really kicked in where I was haha.
Down there I bumped into a classmate from Santa Rosa Junior College who I met through an old friend, Chris. He’s another porn star (Turk Melrose) (wow, I know a lot of porn stars) and probably the best looking one I know, wink wink.
One thing I have noticed about the porn stars I know, they are all so nice. Like, the sweetest people you would ever meet. He was signing autographs and looking all sorts of busy so I didn’t hang around too much.
But while I was at his booth waiting for him to get a free moment, I found a couple of DVD’s of an old flame (haha) and a flier for their company, Pornteam.com, which used the same stock photography I purchased for the Megaplex site I made. I found that pretty funny.
Then off to another booth. I was approached a few times for kisses and handed condoms and lube from a few people… Oh Pride how I love you.
Met Paul and his crew at the Smirnoff booth. What fun people these guys were! We shamelessly judged and drooled over guys and had just a gay ‘ol time.
Then there was of course, the weird (even more weird than the above Gay Zombie)
After a while we decided to make a bee line for some dinner. Every year they get Thai food after the festivities.
On the way to Thai we bumped into Nick Starr. Fun guy. He propositioned me a few more times (hehe) and we took a few pictures together, Paul, Nick and Justin: Internet Whores.
I just had a cup of really yummy soup at Zen Yai Thai since I was waiting to eat my real meal with Ryan.
We bumped into some more porn stars (damn, lucky us) and haggled them on a DVD. Went from $25 to $10 to $5 to $7 + and ass grab. It was fun, he was cute (on the left).
We hung out there for a good long time, before I went back to the hotel where, despite our plans for authentic Thai, we ended up crashing the rest of the night. Still, it was a lot of fun, and meeting some readers was awesome too.
