San Francisco Pride 2013

Would you like to see a few hundred photos of San Francisco Pride 2013?


How about just one?

This gorgeous couple has been together for twenty nine years. I don't know their names, but they stood beside us at the parade for many hours today, cheered loudly when the policy makers who supported them drove past, and educated us on the roles of the incredible people who helped make this historic day possible. The veil idea was theirs. If you wore one at Pride this weekend, you owe them a dollar.

Earlier today I realised what we were witnessing. I turned to the woman on the left, and we held each other as we both cried and cried and cried.
