PRIDE WEEK – Welcome to the Gaybourhood!

Today was the third annual Welcome to the Gaybourhood – and I’m proud to say I’ve been at all three.  LOL  It’s one of my absolute favourite Pride Week events.  While the numbers were a little disappointing this year, nothing else was!  Absolutely wonderful people, great entertainment, yummy food, and gorgeous weather too.  No way could one be let down when all those ducks line up neatly in a row.  🙂

A couple of new things for us this year:  Saskatoon’s juggling club, The Secret Circus, was there and we finally got to see my sister’s group, The Seahags, perform – so yay!

I honestly couldn’t possibly say enough good things about the gentlemen who were at Welcome to the Gaybourhood representing The Secret Circus.  Robin, Paul, and Breton were all fantastic performers…  and Robin and Paul were absolutely amazing with Lily-Ann.  Seriously.  We hung out with them for a good hour before they went up on stage to do their bit – and they taught her all sorts of cool things.  They were so generous with their time and knowledge, it was a real treat.  And I think I may have to hunt down a Diabollo (did I spell that right) for the girlie, she ADORED theirs.  LMAO

The Seahags were “dismembered”, as there were only three of the five of them performing today – but Lily was more than happy to help out, and boosted their numbers up one.  She danced on stage with them until the sun just got to be too much, came down to cuddle with me for a half a song then asked (ever so politely) to leave.  So while I was enjoying getting to hear my sister play for the first time in forever, we packed it up.

As always…  an absolutely wonderful day at Welcome to the Gaybourhood!

  1. Hey Tobi,
    It’s Paul, one of the jugglers. Wondering if I can take some of your photos of us juggling to put on our website. Thanks for the kind remarks btw!

  2. Thanks Tobi. I put a link to your blog on our pictures section under “In the Gaybourhood”. You can check it out here: http://www.saskatoonjugglingclub.ca
