For the first time EVER in our country, the Department of Defense participated in a Pride parade. The Armed Forces Color Guard led the parade (presented by Marriott!) and were greeted by cheers and thanks. They were followed, of course, by Dykes on Bikes, go-go boys with super soakers, and rainbow after rainbow after rainbow. And Kaiser Permanente!
Most groups marching only had one color bead to throw, and in the end we wound up with our very own rainbow. Happy Pride!
