SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – From San Diego to Miami, from Salt Lake City to Anchorage, gay men and women are celebrating a victory of a lifetime: the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that marriage is a constitutional right for all.
But no other celebration is as big as that of San Francisco, especially among LGBT people of color.
Forget about the wave of rainbow colors enveloping Facebook profile pictures. The San Francisco celebration is big and it involves — what else — food!
Mexicans can now order their burritos wrapped in shiny, rainbow-colored foil, courtesy of the food chain, Chipotle. A full-page ad in the San Francisco Chronicle even greeted readers with “Homo estás?” (How are y’al doing, homos?).
Filipinos, on the other hand, can now enjoy rainbow-colored ingredients in their halo-halo, the all-time Pinoy favorite dessert/snack, similar to the Hawaiian shaved ice. Don’t forget to ask for an extra scoop of ube, that sweet and creamy purple stuff!
Ah, savour the taste of freedom and equality. Everything is so much more fun living in San Francisco — that is, if you can afford the rent.
