The march made it's way to the West Hollywood Park where The Purple Party- Celebrating Women was just getting started. There was a main stage, food trucks, rainbow wrist bands, bars set up in tents giving away free t-shirts, and ladies, ladies, ladies. Not to mention celebrity gay ladies. As afterellen.com would call them, celesbians. Shortly after we got there, Dani from A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila walked by. Sara tried to get me to talk to her but it reminded me of when I was at a bar in Seattle and saw Sirbrina, also from the show. My friends Monique and Megan were determined to get me to hit on her and wrote my phone number down on a receipt for her. She wound up telling them that she wasn't into me because she liked femmes. Traumatized. So somehow I was too chicken to get a picture with Dani.
We also potentially saw Tim Gunn from Project Runway walking through the crowd (we will call him a celebrigay) along with a few of the Ladies from Showtime's, The Real L Word. The show helped sponsor the event and had a pretty big presence throughout the night. Ironically, Sara and I had just tuned into the premier of the second season last week and were pretty impressed. This season looks like it will be better than the last one. I was excited to see people from the show casually walking by. I had said to Sara, "Of all the people on The Real L Word, I would love to meet Sajdah. She seems really cool." Sure enough, we spotted her over by the stage. Sara grabbed me by the arm and said, "There she is, we're meeting her." We both shook hands with her and chatted for a bit. I was right, she is awesome. Excuse the crappy quality of the picture from my phone, but here it is. Way cool. We should be friends...just sayin ;)
Whitney from The Real L Word (not only the new season but season one as well) was also there introducing Macy Gray to the stage.
