June is Pride month with parades and all kinds of colorful events. Our county's Pride Parade took place yesterday and the Geek and I participated in the parade with his company. It was bigger than last year, even though it still dwarfs compared to the big parade in San Francisco that we saw in 2017. Last year there were 65 participating organisations, this year 91 - I assume probably in response to all the anti-LGBTQ+ laws in many states of the country. Whatever the reason, for us it was pretty clear that we would be part of it the moment the information was sent out in Robert's company.
It was a gorgeous, sunny day. The parade was in downtown, so we could walk there (it's a 30 minute walk) and didn't have to deal with finding a parking spot. It didn't take long to find "our" parade truck and hang out with colleagues and their families before the start.
While we waited for the parade to start, we met "Yanita Letgo" - time to take pictures!
Yanita Letgo certainly was one of the more colorful persons, but the whole event was a sea of colors. A rainbow of colors, so to speak.
We were on 11th position and therefore could watch most of the parade after we had arrived at the "finish line".
