Pride Parade in OKC

Yesterday, I was among many people with my lawn chair camped out on the side of the road waiting for the parade to pass.

It was the first Gay Pride Parade I have ever been to, I wanted to get a good seat so I was early. It was a good thing because it was crowded and well worth the wait. There were democratic candidates in the parade so it was also nice to see people I knew participating. Casey Davis, Al McAffrey, Rhonda Rudd, Andrew Rice, and Jim Roth all took part in the festivities.

Several of the floats who passed handed out social and educational literature. So it was not just about fun.
