**WARNING: SUPER photo heavy.**
The boy and I walked down to Ocean Drive this morning to check out the Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade, so here are some of the 10 bajillion pictures I took.
The parade was kicked off by the Stonewall Knights motorcycle club.
Roller derby chicks and minotaurs(??).
Conga band leading the Discotekka float.
They’re like big, colorful birds. So pretty.
Pride Marching Band. They were playing Abba’s “Dancing Queen”! =)
Mi gente! (ie, cubans)
At first I thought that said “Big Gay Bus.”
I am not embarrassed to admit that I got teary-eyed when the Legacy Couples went by. Some of these people have been together as long as my parents have. And much longer than most straight couples I know.
The Miami Gay Men’s Chorus. They were singing Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” hence the crib.
I told the boy that this is totally how I see him: a hot guy with a beard and a nice butt!
My camera decided to refocus right as Grand Marshal, Chaz Bono, was riding by.
I really liked the Score float.
Gratuitous butt shot and more roller derby chicks.
The Catalina Hotel and the Stonewall Museum.
The Donkey Show (yeah, I don’t know) and Twist nightclub.
The PB Boys (?) and the dancers from Swinging Richards (I’m told it’s a strip club).
There were two more floats after this but I didn’t get pictures because my battery died and I was starting to get heat stroke, so we came back home.
That’s it for now. Peace out, yo!
