Welcome to San Francisco’s 1999 Pride Celebration! This year’s theme, “Proud Heritage, Powerful Future” is espe­ cially true for the bisexual and gender-fluid community. We’ve tried to illustrate a little of that heritage with our supplement’s centerfold. Looking for a challenge? Try our Treasure Hunt! By the end of the hunt, you will have visited some of the most biinclusive booths at Pride, gained a grab bag of goodies, and maybe even garnered a souvenir or two. Remember, all items must be gathered with the permission of their own­ ers, but we bet if you ask nicely they’ll be more than happy to lend a hand — or feather, as the case may be.
