Mikes on Bikes at 2010 San Francisco Queer Freedom Parade

The Mikes on Bikes made a fabulous showing in the San Francisco Queer Freedom Parade at this year’s 40th San Francisco Pride Celebration.

After riding and enjoying the festivities, we met in the evening for a hot tub party.

Cayenne Celebrates the Big 60th Birthday!

A good time was had by all at Cayenne’s 60th birthday party here in San Francisco.

I performed a poem called “The Leaden Echo and the Golden Echo” by Gerard Manley Hopkins in full ponce drag.

Other performers included Jim e Sparklepants, Ryan Mintz with his new hit “Welcome Home”, Peggy Leggs (thanks for helping with my makeup sweety!), Bimbo the Clown, Charley pole dancing, and a host of luscious models working the runway in the fashual (fashion ritual) organized by Jack Davis. After all the entertainment, Jack Davis led a ritual offering to Cayenne of all that those gathered felt he desired and deserved, followed by Cayenne speechifying a bit then cutting the amazing cake.

Check out the pictures and videos I took of the event (and please let me know if you’d like anything removed):
