It was a FANTASTIC Gay Pride Weekend in Cincinnati that Kicked off for us @ Old Street Saloon! The Quasi and Friends show was really awesome as we were also celebrating Mair’s Birthday! And let me tell you – EVERYONE celebrated!! Me, Quasi and Monica gave the gays and the Soccer Mom’s a great show and Booshee made sure they drank the house out of flavored Vodka! LOL It really was a fun show – second Friday of every month.
Then Saturday, we had a little time to relax during the day. While Quasi was running over to host the Pride Festivities in Hoffner Park, Will and I headed up for a nice gay trip to IKEA. What could be more gay? Meatballs for lunch and some gay pride IKEA shopping!
Then it was off to Adonis for the big night of Celebrating Pride. Miss Adonis 2008, Leah Halston, Monica St. James, Mirage Love, Quasi and me – giving the gays all we could! EVERYONE was out Saturday night! It was nice to see Darlene Love again (we drive by her house nearly every day, but fail to stop for some reason! LOL). The new platform on the dancefloor has gotten rave reviews and the gays were DANCING!!! Big Kudos to DJPatrickB
We wrapped up Saturday night a touch early (2am) and headed off to bed because Sunday was gonna come earlier than my usual waking up time….HAPPY GAY PRIDE PARADE!!! So, up ealy on Sunday, makeup and crazy gay pride outfit on – in the car – heading over to host the gay pride parade in northside. Brad and John over at Bronze were nice enough to set up the whole sound system and “bandstand” for me to scream from. I’m sure I didn’t keep my language as PC as they would have liked – but I DID have a good time! LOL AND – even got a nice review from the Examiner! Here’s the link http://bit.ly/e4lHr
The rain held off until just moments after the last float passed by – thank you Universe (wink). And everyone scurried inside one establishment or another to continue their celebrating. It was an awesome parade and in incredible turnout. I have plenty of photos to post and I’ll get them up soon
Monday we headed down to the All American Goddess Pageant in Lexington, KY…you thought the weekend was over??? LOL…NOT YET! We had many friends competing and it was great to see everyone! It was a really good pageant with a ton of big names entering. I did my best to keep the gays on CarrieFairfield updated - and my thumbs were worn out from texting! Candi Stratton captured the title and the crown (and the sweet prize package)! Congratulations to all the gals who made their way down to KY and keep your eyes on AAG for next year…I hear even more big things are coming.

The Find Fred Story
In 2008 while the GLBT community & FINDFRED founders were fighting the Prop 8 battle and turning key states like Ohio blue to protect our rights, the country's largest m4m website (Manhunt) co-founder was contributing to McCain's campaign and the Republican Party. A party that for the past 8 years has worked to write discrimination into our laws, often successfully. Thus, FINDFRED.COM was born. We want the GLBT community to sleep safe knowing that a company they support is fighting FOR GLBT equal rights. FindFred will commit a minimum of 10% of profits towards grants and investments for GLBT charities, equal rights and community causes.
