Hampton Roads gay pride ! The day began with a wicked rainstorm but as I asked promotor Mike Beene if it would be postponed he said”  We can’t have a rainbow without stormy clouds”. just as our boat arrived  the sun came out  and I played a set to a beautiful crowd  with several friends from highschool at the end of the rainbow. I got a great tour of Norfolk and va. beach from my HIGHschool BUDdy Brenda Reid! what a treat to remeniss about locals Jim and Tammy Faye ‘s wacky encounters, my favorite teacher mr. Mitchell,getting crabs from Country Comfort,listening to the b52s at “the Wave” ,the insanity of mrs. archibald and her stories about local witches she really believed , getting kicked off kempsville soccer team because i inhaled,the “statue” ,and other stories from the awkward days when first pubes are sprouting. Needed to stay longer next time and catch up with my other long lost but not forgotten  buds . sad to hear about Kim Paland’s untimely death. R.I.P girl!  If I’m not mistaken, this was Hampton Roads very first Gay pride! I was thrilled to be a part of that success and  was looking everywhere for local hero Missy Elliot!- Lady kier
