Thanks for the idea,
yet I know
how it hurts
to be one

I wanted to link this week’s Hullaba Lulu video to San Francisco’s Pride Week so I used an excerpt from a 1929 Dorsey Brothers cover of ‘Am I Blue’ sung by Irving Kaufman.
It’s an unusual cover for 1929 and you’ll know why I chose it when you hear the song.
Sunday the 26th is Pride Day in San Francisco.
A couple of friends have remarked on how weird it feels to celebrate Pride
while the Trump Administration kidnaps children for reasons too horrific
Here’s what I think: when the opposition doesn’t show up, the bullies win.
Happy Pride Month everyone and be sure to check out this week’s episode of Hullaba Lulu on Teagan’s Books.
