Worlds Collide in Union Square
Union Square was its own show this sunny Saturday morning. It was of course full of tourists, & there was an outdoor art show for them to check out. Open-roofed tour buses continually circled the block. Tall drag queens rallied a small but growing crowd gathered for the National Kiss In. A group of about 30 dancers appeared by stealth & gave us a piece of Hit and Run Hula. At least some of those tourists were paying attention. I overheard one of them rejoin his wife & happily announce he had gotten a picture of 2 men kissing.
