The life is beautiful festival was held this weekend. What a mess both downtown and at my home this created. I was downtown Saturday and the crowds were just unbearable for me. Parking was also a nightmare, with normal downtown parking rates skyrocking to $25 or more. Lol.

At home this was problematic because I had 4 friends from Philadelphia in town for the festival. They are staying for 10 days, as I have another personal type celebration occurring next weekend. My brother also had 6 friends from Florida in town for the festival. Thankfully they are leaving tomorrow. Lol

I am an early-riser. That is sort of my private time as it takes my partner a while to get going in the morning. He has a medication procedure, taking certain meds at different times etc, before he gets going. My brother and other roommate are night owls and late risers, so as I said, that hour or two in the early AM is kind of my private time. This morning as I was stepping over barely out of college aged kids in sleeping bags in my living room, it just didn't feel like "My own private time". LOL

You are much nicer than I am.

I don't mind having house guests on rare occasions as long as they fit in the spare bedrooms and don't expect to stay more than 3 nights.

Oh it's kind of nice having friends and family over. Sundays, I spend lounging around the backyard and pool (actually there isn't a whole lot of backyard) while watching football outside and hoping it will be someone else that does the barbequing. Yesterday was just a few more people. :) I complain (in jest) but life is beautiful for me and not just this one weekend. :)

What, the festival or him letting people stay in his house?

"No" as to both.

The festival is for the young, so no wonder you know nothing about it; you seem not to care a wit for modern pop music and pop culture; think "i heart."

As for letting people sleep in your living room: not "gay," just "generous."

No, it isn't "odd" at all.

No doubt pop music and everybody trying to get along appeals to many gays.

This seems akin to Burning Man, another event I suspect you'd consider "gay."

"Liberal," yes; "Gay," no.

My point exactly. Things listed under
Gay Events In Vegas are not Gay
at all. *facepalm*
