Anyway, this weekend was Columbus' Pride parade/festival and it was awesome. Partially because it wasn't 97 degrees with 80% humidity, like last year, but mostly because Columbus has THE best gay scene and, as a city, is incredibly supportive of the LGBT community. I trekked down to the parade with my camera and got some pretty sweet shots. Keep scrolling to see some of my favorites, and check out the full album on my Flickr.
Our grand marshall this year was none other than George Takei. So cool to see him in person!
DAMN STRAIGHT! (No pun intended...okay, maybe a little pun intended.)
DAT OUTFIT DOE.
The revelry stretched like this for about a mile and a half, from downtown to the Short North.
(If you're following my photo a day project, you might recognize this HRC flag. If you're not following it, don't worry, I'm doing a post later this month.)
This was part of AEP's float/group. Can you believe it? Talk about eye candy...I'll never think of electricians the same way again.
One of my favorites, bringing up the rear of the parade.
Does your city (or one nearby) do an annual Pride celebration? Have you been? What do you think?
