Seattle Gay Pride Parade

At the end of June Robb and I hit up the Seattle Gay Pride Parade and Festival. We missed the Fremont Solstice Parade earlier in the month because Robb was recovering from knee surgery. So we decided to try checking out the Seattle Pride Parade this year to get a little Seattle culture and cheer on the LGBT community. The most interesting thing about this parade (besides its 2+ hour length) was the inclusion. There were big companies represented (like Macy's and Verizon), there were on-the-fringe leather/bondage groups, there were churches, there were politicians, and there were families. It felt like everyone in the world was coming together to support the LGBT community and it was absolutely lovely. Now, the pictures really speak for themselves.
