Cheryl and I had a late night of wild eating and Mexican Train with her neighbors. She made a vegan New Mexico apple pie that we nommed like nombies.
Luckily, the farmer's market doesn't judge you if you get there late and undercaffeinated.
Southern New Mexico Pride Festival.

|DANG-tootin' you are!|
Lots of families, and a kid's area where Cheryl and I tattooed ourselves.
Trivia that's not trivial:
- New Mexico's non-discrimination law protects transgender people, who often get thrown under the political bus to achieve LGB protection.
- Twenty-nine US states allow job & housing discrimination based on sexual orientation (gay folks can legally be fired for gayness).
- Thirty-four US states allow job & housing discrimination based on gender identity and presentation (same as above, for trans people).
- There is no federal law that prohibits discrimination based on orientation or gender identity.
If you're jealous of all the cool gay swag and rainbow vibes we encountered today, be green no longer. June is Pride Month, so hunt yourself up a good parade or festival and get some fabulous on you.
