It’s a Small, Small World What Do You Do When You’ve Dated All of Gay Pittsburgh By Chrissy Costa A warm mist fills the air. Marigolds are in full bloom. A prostitute passes a clove cigarette to her friend. Ah, the sweet scent of an impending summer. Mix that with the sweat of hot bodies, unclad men and women, and fashionably overdressed drag queens filling the streets of downtown Pittsburgh, and you’ve guessed it: Pride has returned.

As you ponder where to go and what to wear to the many Pride festivities this year, you may also have a few woes plaguing your mind. Among the long bathroom lines, lost drink tickets, and jawbreakers flying from over zealous parade floats, you’re probably also a little anxious over that inevitable and often uncomfortable run-in with your ex.

If you’re like most people, you have an ex that, to avoid, you would trample over some inept toddlers and hurdle strollers (we gays can be so dramatic). And if you’re like me, you’ve a few. Let’s face it, you can’t shake a glow stick on Liberty Avenue without hitting some homosexual you once shared a feline and a box of condoms with.
