Gay Bi Gay Gay In Austin, Texas

I would have never expected to say this, but last night I witnessed what has to be the queerest event I've ever come across... and it just so happened to be in Texas. A good three or four hundred queer folks and their friends gathered in a backyard in East Austin yesterday for the annual "Gay Bi Gay Gay" event that goes down the last sunday of SXSW. Performers took the stage as onlookers drank $2 beers and ate vegan calzones well into the night. Neighbours of the people that put on the event didn't seem to mind either... predominately a lower class African-American community, many families took to their front lawns to sell hamburgers and hot dogs, or wandered into the backyard to take advantage of the cheap beer and festivities. I've got to say the result was pretty much as joyous and inclusive as it gets...

The performance highlight most definitely was Christeene, obviously a considerable cult figure in these parts... Singing songs like "Fix My Dick" and "Tears From My Pussy," the audience sang along to the lyrics and ducked their heads when Christeene removed a butt plug from her anus and threw it into the crowd. It was quite the scene, and I highly recommend checking out Christeene's music videos here and here.

Here's a bunch of photos from the event... A forewarning the ones after the jump are occasionally NSFW.
