No matter when they book the Lesbian and Gay Pride Parade to run down Broadway in Long Beach, some people won't show up. First Baptist Church, for instance, has made other plans for 11 a.m. Sunday. The Rev. Mark Chappell is taking the opportunity to deliver a sermon on "traditional family values," which he says discourage homosexuality. "The message that we're going to be bringing is that God loves the homosexual but he does not love homosexuality," Chappell said.

Fashion Week may be over, but fashion, as flaunted by Garung -- six women who act, dance, sing, chatter and chortle -- comes to sexy life in the West Coast premiere of this eponymous, movement-based theater piece at the Ivar Theatre. Conceived by British-born choreographer Madeleine Dahm, Garung (German for "disquiet") is a local troupe of actors (plus dance-trained Dahm) whose sophisticated opus conjures images of Pina Bausch, Jean Cocteau and apple-chomping Eves.

New Orleans parades and celebrations have been going on since mid-February as a run-up to the final fabulous blowout of Mardi Gras on Tuesday (today).

Nine parades are planned for Tuesday in and around New Orleans. (If you don't get the whole street parade thing, check out Hugh Laurie at the Krewe of Bacchus parade on Sunday.)
