Saturday, July 13 was a great day - my first San Diego Pride Parade! And it was everything I hoped it would be. It was overflowing with color, joy, laughter, diversity, and beautiful San Diego sunshine. A great day indeed.
There was definitely a lot of good people (and pet!) watching before the parade started.
|There was a 5k run to kick the festivities off.|
|I almost wore MY pink feather hat - crisis averted!|
Then the parade was kicked off with a huge group of motorcyclists.
|La Toya Jackson - one of the Grand Marshals|
|Grand Marshal George Takei - aka Mr. Sulu, helmsman of the Star Trek USS Enterprise - and his spouse, Brad.|
|This guy was so proud - he was telling everyone in the crowd that this was his mother. Can't you just see it on his face?|
|A second shot - from the side - just to make sure you didn't miss anything.|
|Who doesn't love firemen?|
|My Congressman. I was so proud.|
|I don't know about this - is anyone else thinking Michael Jackson?? Call the ASPCA.|
|A marriage proposal right in the middle of the parade! So sweet - apparently two local well-known guys.|
|Leslie Jordan - The hilarious 4' 11" powerhouse who has played parts in numerous TV shows like Reba, Boston Legal, Desperate Housewives, and Will and Grace.|
From my world to yours - just a frame away.
