Like an Edo parade in modern Tokyo Metro.
Metro map is certainly handy.
There’s something lovely about seeing the “backstage” of the festival, the little things that make the celebration possible. Like somewhere to stash your pants.
Why are ladies attracted to bad boys? I have *no* idea.
What better way to start this small fall festival photo series than some bouncing junk. Sure, there’s tons of male ass on display as the men (and some ladies) huddle together to carry the shrines. But there are also surprises up front. Now this is the kind of religion that makes me want to participate, unlike so many others I have encountered.
Wartime comraderie never looked more seductive. I like the idea that we think back to World War II and remember the lesbianism. Why can’t East Asia reach this level of reflection and insight 67 years after the war’s end? What did Yoko Ono say about war?
What’s not to like?
Unexpectedly hilarious explanation of voter ID laws that restrict voting. Veterans ID and Social Security cards don’t allow people to vote, but gun licenses do.
When I think of gay religious holidays, I naturally imagine Folsom Street Fair, the world’s largest leather and fetish outdoor event. Hundreds of thousands attend. All the spiritual uplifting and community without the tedious obligations and family fighting.

220 million views on Youtube. I particularly like the sauna scene with the tattoo guy. This PSY guy is styling!
