“Happy Pride” said the really attractive girl that I couldn’t actually carry on a conversation with because she was ~2 pretty 2 live~. I’m v. grateful to MTV Style for allowing me the opportunity to take pictures of hotties and cool kids without seeming like a creep.
Dyke Day LA is an all-day picnic that happens in Barnsdall Park right after Dyke March. Since 2008, they’ve been killin it, finally finding a way to mix the cray of Pride weekend with the calm of a family picnic. The general vibe is cool kids, hip families, hot ladies, and a handful of people who pass out flyers/take-out menus? I knew I was about to have the best time because my friend told me she goes every year, and she’s a lot cooler than me.

I had a blast, largely because the music was BANGIN'. I don’t need an excuse to dance to "Problem," but I appreciate being able to do so surrounded by all of the pretty lesbians. Also, everyone is dressed so cool and hip, and I made my friends ask people if I could take their picture.
An interesting fact about me—I can’t talk to hotties. AT ALL. Especially when the hotties are dressed well. At Dyke Day, I was intimidated even more than usual because not only was everyone attractive and cool, but they all seemed intelligent, funny, creative, and hard-working, which means wife material. YOU CAN’T JUST APPROACH YOUR FUTURE WIFE ALL NONCHALANT, YOU KNOW?!
