Marching in the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade is a whole lot of fun, but it does mean getting up early to be down in the assembly area, well before the parade starts. It also means you don’t get to see much of the parade, but the enthusiastic crowds more than make up for that.
This was my first time marching with the Leather Contingent and they are a great group to be with. While the mainstream media continues to ignore us, everyone else was very welcoming. From the cute girls giving free hugs to the hot guys giving a thumbs up, the crowds showed their love for Leather.
Thanks to everyone who came out to cheer on the marchers and also to those who took videos and posted them on YouTube. To see more photos of the Leather Contingent and a few photos at the festival, click here.
