Vancouver Pride Parade 2009

August 2, 2009 at 10:59 pm 4 comments

holy smokes it was a long parade…Vancouver Pride keeps growing and growing!!!

A highlight for me was watching bro-in-law shame simpson (ndp m.l.a. east vancouver hastings).  Shane walked along with his own pride…not hard to do i imagine, when done with the courage of your convictions, and knowing that’s what your party stands behind is the right of minorities.  the first shot has Cathy Corrigan beside him….egads, the irish mafia 😀

dykes on bikes is a loud procession of proud mamas on their 2 wheels and despite the amount of exhaust one breathes in it’s really one of the funnest parts of the parade.  WAY more bare chested riders then last year and it was great to see mammary glands out in the open (how much longer before the lawmakers finally get that breasts are not sexual organs???

lord knows what Iggy thinks of Hedy Fry, but i tell ya, that gal LOVES to dress up and support pride.

and for simon and bruce….i tried taking pics of some hotties but i’m getting slower and lazier every year.  none the less , here goes:

guys

as well as the fun there was the sobering, like the two gals in pseudo undertaker’s garb pushing a large wreath for those who have died (they weren’t specific but the married queens sitting next to me and i deduced it was for everything from aids victims to elders who had fought for  our rights long ago.  ‘Stonewall’ posters showed up here and there.

but fun and pride were at the core and i’m happy i was there!
