Homo Pride Parading
posted by June 25 at 13:37 PMon
Yesterday I led a group of lesbian, bi, trans, and queer-friendly bellydancers and drummers in the parade downtown. Though we spent most of the route hurrying rather than dancing (it was hard to keep up with the motorized floats), we had a fantastic time and the spectators did too: All kinds of people were crowded on the sidewalks and exuberant despite a cold breeze and occasional sprinkles. It was a massive effort with plenty of witty costumes, performances, and floats (more than 150 groups rolled down Fourth Avenue for three hours or so) and from within at least, it looked to be Seattle’s best Pride Parade yet.
Go to Flickr for a ton of great photos of the parade.
