The Orlando Fringe Festival is trippy even when you’re sober, but after you’ve been hitting the beer tents and full-liquor bar (holler at Stonewall) all day in between shows, things start to get even weirder.

Last weekend’s “Come Out With Pride” parade and associated events were a fabulous celebration for Orlando’s GLBT community, and/or a huge traffic headache if you live downtown.

wpid-Photo-May-19-2013-844-PM.jpg

Emily Dickinson (Tanya O'Debra) was a poet, recluse, and the most annoying person ever born. If you decide to spend an hour with her, be prepared to part with a healthy sum of your patience.
