As always, the third weekend in April brings out the beautiful freaks in Olympia. The 17th annual Procession of The Species descended upon the town on a lovely sunny Saturday and I took it all in from the Capitol Theater’s marquee, thanks to Ira, Lois and Eric. This year marked my 6th Procession experience. Perhaps if I’m still here next year, I’ll finally design a costume. I believe that participating in this parade makes you an official townie and dooms you never to leave Oly.
