Pageantry of Celebrations

June 2015

Month of June in San Francisco and Bay Area is like a glorious summer. I enjoyed variety of events under the radiance of the sun.
For example;

Stern Grove Festival Provide performances by some of the world’s greatest artists in this glorious natural setting. Last year, opening by Smokey Robinson & Patti Austin. This year was Doobie Brothers & California Honeydrops.

YBG (Yerba Buena Gardens) Festival is to enhance the vitality and quality of life. Music, dance, theater, and cultural events.

SF Opera “The Trojans” One of the largest, most magnificent pieces in the entire repertory, this rarely staged epic is presented here for the first time in 47 years, the way it was originally meant to be seen: two operas —The Fall of Troy and The Trojans at Carthage

The Sights, Sounds and Pageantry of Celebrations such as
(1) SF City Hall 100th Birthday.
(2) Founding of the SF Presidio and Mission Dolores. 239th anniversary of the Second Anza Expedition (1776).
(3) SF Gay Pride Parade was significant this year due to Supreme Court’s Same-Sex Marriage Ruling.A dyke near barricade asked me if I’m a gay. I said “No, I’m Japanese.” and then, she let me move to barricade, so I can see parade better. This talkative dyke introducing me to  people around her saying “She is not a gay. She is Japanese.”  LOL
I just didn’t want to use ward “straight” to categorize my sexuality.
