Thought Pride month was over? Sike: there’s more! October 5 through October 7 is the annual Disneyland “Gay Day” at Anaheim’s Disneyland. The event is to signify community solidarity between LGBT persons and straight allies, who all hang out and ride rides (wearing red!) at the theme park. Fun!

This just in–and quite exciting: Beautiful/Decay is having a one night art auction to benefit Los Angeles art students.
