While most of my friends were striking a pose at Juanita More’s double-venue Pride party at 620 Jones and The Phoenix or dancing eccentric to Hard French DJs at SOMArts, I settled for paying no cover at Rebel, my friendly neighborhood after-hours gay club.
Luckily and unbeknownst to us, Pollo Del Mar had a full-blown drag show planned that day while people mingled in the back patio next to a kiddie pool. On that sunny Sunday, Rebel attracted a wild variety of folks, all seeking a quick fix refuge en route from the Civic Center to the Castro. The drag queens were fierce, the crowd was incredibly eclectic and the overall atmosphere was joyous. It was one of the most fun I’ve had at the club. Just goes to show that sometimes the best experiences in life are the ones you blindly stumble upon.

Only in San Francisco do you see a nude woman in sailor accessories dancing with a man in a trenchcoat and lingerie. I felt like I was in one of Stefon’s favorite nightclubs from SNL’s Weekend Update.
