Long Island to San Francisco for Rainbow Snippets from Jeff Baker. March 4, 2023.

Take your seat to watch the parade or rather, to listen to a couple of parade-watchers.

Every week we post six lines of a story of ours, a work-in-progress or from someone else’s work we recommend that has LGBT characters on Rainbow Snippets here https://www.facebook.com/groups/963484217054974

It’s called: The Long Island to San Francisco By Way Of Alexandria Blues https://authorjeffbaker.com/2018/05/17/the-passing-parade-friday-flash-fics-by-jeff-baker-for-may-18-2018/

I’d been staring at the parade for a while and my eyes were starting to frizz over. The drag queens and shirtless guys were starting to look alike. I glanced to my left and saw the folks at the other window; three, no, four guys with a rainbow flag. I glanced above them; guy in a leather harness who had the virtue of being kind of buff. With another rainbow flag. I smiled to myself, I needed to work out. But I was in pretty good health for my age.

Here’s the next snippet

I looked across the street, over the rooftops. Coit Tower was off in the distance, hidden by one of the buildings. I smiled. I remembered when the tower had been shiny and new, when the bridge had been just a fantasy.

I glanced to the left again; the youngish guy in a white t-shirt was staring over at us. I focused on the parade; a line of men and women in business attire were marching past, waving at the crowd.

“Oh, yeah!” came a voice from the above window. “Cubicle-dwellers! My people!”

Well, that’s that for this week, but our narrator has some secrets, don’t you think? Well, I’ll see you next week for a tale of magic and a menacing raccoon!—–jeff
