2010 Gay Pride Parade Pt. II-San Francisco, CA

Posted Jun 29 2010

40 and Fabulous was this year's theme. It's hard to believe that this event barely pulled a hundred people at its inception as it's now a must visit by politicians such as Mayor Gavin Newsome, pop musicians such as the Backstreet Boys, and is sponsored by companies such as Walt Disney. Both politics and fun are represented and I'm always impressed by the diversity; Jewish kids, old Chinese men, straight families with their babies, Buddhists, you name it, they're there!

I took more than 500 pictures in a matter of a couple of hours, and that was before I left the parade route on Market. The after party was jammed with people and could've easily been another 500 pics but it was too crowded for my taste. Despite the wide-range of folks, the more colorful ones tend to make more interesting photos, although you won't find anything above PG in this gallery!
