Faces of Pride

This past Sunday Seattle held its annual Gay Pride Parade and festival. There was the usual Dykes on Bikes leading the way with their big, vibrating machines, drag queens, flamboyant costumes with an abundance of skin, and a few whose only costume was a bit of body paint. Crowds of people lined the streets as the parade made its way to Seattle Center where the brave ones stripped to their underwear and frolicked in the fountain. Those less inclined, hung out on the grass or danced to the music from one of the two stages, and generally just enjoying the company of friends and the nice weather.

Here’s a few photos of some of the people who were participating and enjoying the day. The weather was beautiful, although the bright sunlight made for some harsh lighting at times. If you enjoy these, I have a few more in a gallery here that you might want to check out.
