Eric Williams ericwphoto.com Feature The Chance of a Lifetime PJ Sedillo and Tony Ross put everything on the line for Albuquerque Pride Once you go, you know. Gay pride events have an energy unlike any other. They're blobs of Silly Putty rolling on a calendar, collecting a year's worth of impressions into one big, colorful gob. There's the romance of Valentine's Day, the all-American sizzle of Fourth of July, the candy-coated spectacle of Halloween, the goodwill and generosity of Christmas. And everyone buys shots like it's their birthday. Minus the shots thing, it's no wonder children love pride parades. Art Holiday Hullabaloo Monday, Dec 11: 11am-6pm Ghostwolf Gallery
