Sidewalk pole dancing lasted only a few rounds before the local policeman shut down this dangerous and/or immoral public display. The drag queen behind him is so mad her cup is popping out.
Yesterday was Tokyo’s Pride Festival, and this home-made couture costume of Isetan department store bags was the best outfit. The festival was small but lively, with a stage, booths, food, and lots of young people.
The stage show included a very large band with brass, wind instruments and percussion; Okinawan dancing and drumming; and a panel of celebrities being filmed for an NHK special on pride and being out.
