Directly translated from Spanish
as "yes, I am"; this is the name of a Puerto Rican gay male alliance
(and possibly nationwide, I'm not sure).
They are strongly represented at the NorthHalsted
fairs and parade with a huge, decked out float. The whole structure is a likeness of the Puerto Rican flag
with an additional small rainbow stripe in the center. It is completely filled with adorably pretty and suggestively (un)dressed chicos jamming out and grinding eachother to latin club music
. The sight of their flag revamped with a rainbow stripe seems to greatly
offend straight Puerto Rican
s so much more than the typical type of offense straight men in general might take from such a thing, as I'm sure you can imagine.
But Si Soy also has a huge huge following here and is worshipped from the outside
by legions of non-Puerto Rican gay folk.
