exhibitionists for a cause

It's sort of like gay for pay in the porn industry, whatever excuse you need to let your freak flag fly. Whatever works.

I heard people hooting outside but thought only, "Jeeze, some people come out of character just being downtown." Then opened the the window Levolor blinds and saw the streets were flooded these people outside again. They do this every year even on days when it's cold.

I need a little more explanation. So far, I'm appreciating the super hero undies. Other than that?

It was the LBGTQWERYUIOPASDFHJKZXCVNM "queer dance freakout" in front of the TX governor's mansion to protest the state's bathroom bill which disallows T access to bathrooms for the opposite

You know.

Hard to say. They've always worn pink underwear, so pink was the clue.

I had recorded in calendar, " underwear run for neural fibrosis" for Valentine's Day, 2/14, but missed that. It was a good day for that sort of thing too as I recall. I looked for this post. [denver, underwear run, 2017]

Cupid's Undie Run
Undie Walk/Run
Boulder Ironman Underpants run
Coloradans Run in their Undies to Fight Colon Cancer

I think it's Cupid's

They're for raising money to fight neurofibromatosis explained here.

It says, c/p:

It’s quite simple, actually. Cupid’s Undie Run is a charity event. There are children out there suffering from a debilitating genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis (NF). NF causes tumor to grow all over the nervous system and can cause blindness, deafness, learning disabilities and severe chronic pain. If these children can be so brave as to deal with the cards they have been dealt, then the least we can do is face our owns fears in a manner that raises funds to help find them a cure.

We give concerned involved citizens a chance to ponce around the whole in their underwear and with their pants pulled down and wearing tutus and striped pull socks, or even in costume as another Halloween, let off steam, carve out a moment when the regular rules don't apply, let their freak flag fly, another chance to be silly without being called a fag and without being drunk or stoned.

Maybe I made up part of that.

I think Chip posted last year run also. If memory serves.

Well that seems like a first rate cause, Chip. And the people look like they're having fun. I'd need some sort of warm body suit but it could be a silly one. :)
