What is it about a live newscast and a gay pride parade???

Not sure how many of you caught the evening news tonight on CFCF but it was a hoot! Anytime that a newscaster did a live report from the Gay Village, people would congregate around them like moths to a flame.

While Annie Demelt tryed to give a recap of the opening night ceremonies, she was flanked from behind by a vinyl and fishnet-clad young lady wearing hot pink elbow-length gloves who performed a sultry little dance as poor Demelt stoicly spoke of Mayor Tremblay’s speech and attempted to keep her composure.

Then for the weather report, weathercaster Lori Graham had a man with a rainbow lei try to move in beside her to get in the shot! There’s something about a camera that brings out the diva in all of us…

    Do gay revelers have a free pass to act like fools on camera that other revelers do not?

    I think that when many people see someone with a camera,a mic and open space for them to act crazy- there is an innate urge to perform. May sound Freudian but perhaps it goes back to childhood!!!
