I wasn't here last year, but I know there's been controversy about the parade moving from Capitol Hill, which is the city's gay neighborhood, to downtown. Looking at the parade route, though, I find it interesting that it's taking place on fourth avenue and not on first and that it starts at Westlake Park and shopping center and goes north away from it. Because it's not on first avenue it won't bother the tourists gathered at Pike Place Market. I won't bother their shopping experience or anyone else's either because most of it takes place in Belltown.
Can't have the queers fucking up tourist's shopping experience at Pike Place Market now, can we?
