My non-profit organization is having a large booth at L.A. Pride Festival this summer and one of our objectives is to get people's names and email addresses. We've talked about swag, but one of the things that I think would be popular is giving people 20 business cards (or mini-cards) with their name and address that they could use for their own purposes during the festival. They would get what they want (useful swag) and we would get what we want (email addresses). [more inside]

I have a yoga fundraiser tomorrow at 5pm that I want something gay pride-ish for (like a t-shirt or yoga pants). I have a lot of gay friends that I could borrow a t-shirt from but I am traveling tomorrow so would be unable to meet up with anyone (and will be unable to shop tomorrow or get anything online by then). I have no rainbow stuff.
I am in Center City Philadelphia. I will be checking Athleta, Lululemon, City Sports, Gap, etc for rainbow
stuff, but I'd prefer something that expressly (like words) supports equality. All Google really tells me is gay-friendly stuff, gay reading (e.g. Giovanni's), etc. Does anyone know if any of those places would have slogan/pride t-shirts? Am I missing a HRC location or something else that would have something?

Where can I buy this necklace? At the store the other day I saw someone wearing a heart-shaped pendant with a clear covering in the center that displayed lgbt pride colors. It looked kind of like this
, except there weren't any symbols in the middle, the rainbow colors were straight across instead of wavy and it wasn't a keychain.

Do you have a mailing list at your place of work, for gay people to chat with other gay people on? A pride list, as it is commonly known. What are your experiences of it? Do you know anything about how it was originally set up? How does it work for you; what are the pros and cons of such a mailing list in the workplace? [more inside]

My daughter is hosting a potluck dinner for a group at our house. I volunteered to make and decorate a cake. What is a witty (short) phrase I can put on the cake for the "Queers and allies" group? I plan to decorate the cake like a pride flag, but would like to write something on it too.

Everyone has it harder than me. So I should be taking advantage of that, right? [more inside]

I received a not very nice letter from my neighbor. Is it worth explaining to this neighbor that I did not actually litter? What happens when someone reports you for littering? [more inside]

A friend of mine is coming in from a couple hours away (each way) for the night (halloween party), and money is tight on her end. I would go pick her up myself, but have to work late into the afternoon and wouldn't have time to drive up and back twice between today and tomorrow. I want to give her the money for gas (I am in a much better position financially), since I know this is a big expense for her and she is saving me the trip, but she is very independent and does not want me reimbursing her.
How can I get her to accept it without making damaging her ego or seeming like this is out of pity?

What song best represents pride [as in the seven deadly sins...] in an over-the-top ridiculous way OR subtly ingratiating way? I'm trying to put together a killer setlist of songs that are either unmistakably about pride or sneak up on you. Open season on genre.

What is the best way for me - a gay man living in a country where I don't speak much of the language and where gay people are relatively repressed - to promote greater rights for gay people here? [more inside]
