Christopher Street West, ANSWER truck

Here’s the ANSWER LA truck/float, one of hundreds of entries in the West Hollywood Christopher Street West parade. Usually, we’re about the only political entry. This year though, there were several. Good! The parade got its name from the Stonewall Rebellion on Christopher Street in 1969, the uprising that marked the birth of the modern gay rights movement, even if the parade seems to have strayed some from its roots.

Amidst all the floats sponsored by vodka, beer, and banks, our anti-Bush chant, “He’s racist, sexist, anti-gay. George Bush, go away.”, got enthusiastic response from the crowd.
