an odd couple

A story in today’s Austin American-Statesman pointed out something I didn’t realize: this weekend, the Republic of Texas Bike Rally and the Austin Pride Parade, celebrating gay, lesbian and transgendered folks, are both holding their celebrations in Austin.
When I say “bike rally”, I mean big Harley-Davidson-riding, leather-wearing bikers.
In any other city, it would probably be a big problem since, from what I understand, bikers aren’t the most pro-gay demographic group in the world. I suppose the two groups are mostly mutually-exclusive so who would have noticed the conflict? ::wink:: The newspaper article is interesting as it also adds that gay bikers do not believe they could be fully open as homosexual among other bikers.
