I hope you’ve been training.
Pride Weekend, the toughest endurance test of the gay calendar year, has officially begun. With any luck, by Monday, you’ll have danced until your stilettos snapped, scream-sung your throat sore, and sweated out every vodka soda you’ve downed in the past month.
But it’s only one weekend, and there’s a limit to how many 5 Hour Energy shots one body can handle. Use our flowchart to get your priority list straight, as it were.
