Cali & the WEHO Cheerleaders
I've been going to L.A. PRIDE for 25 years (since I was 16) but this was the first time I ever walked in the parade. A friend who works for NBCUniversal invited me and my doggy Cali to walk with the OUT@NBCUniveral group. It was very exhilarating and fun and the adrenaline pumped me up for the whole day! - Lydia Marcus
Here are my favorite photos from PRIDE:
Cali & Lucille Ball impersonator
Cali is full of PRIDE. Posing in front of an old MTA bus

With all the noise, people, moving vehicles, and general mania, Cali kept looking back and checking that I was still behind her.
Olympian Johnny Weir strikes a pose. He was the parade's Grand Marshal
Madame Tussaud's had a float with wax figures of Lady Gaga and Jane Lynch. From a distance I saw Jane and thought she was actually in the parade. The likeness is uncanny.
Heaven is missing two gay angels. :-)
Love these t-shirts! Take that Fred Phelps!
The WEHO Cheerleaders show their spirit!
The focus isn't perfect, but I like the moment - WEHO Sheriffs in front of the Pride festival entrance.
Tons of attendance at the Parade. A view of the crowd
The BRAVO TV contingent: Jenni Pulos, Andy Cohen, Zoila, and Jeff Lewis.

OUT@NBCU workers dancing on the route. It was so much fun walking alongside these guys and gals because they really got the crowd pumped up.
