Pride On The Line
First time ever in North America. And Toronto gets the nod.
And today was the Gay Pride Parade.
Calm Before The Storm
Although I'm not sure if this float is sanctioned by the NHL. I'm sure the uniforms are not.
Although again, I'm doubting the IEWU is funding this one. No steel toes!
This really looks to just be a bunch of people - not even buffed people! - standing around on a float in their underwear.
Looking very similar to the people watching them. Art imitating life?
I'm now one for........
I'm even getting the wave.
Engineers can recognize other cool guys.
I guess this one to get you in the mood.
I am not as talented, as I could not time it to get the batons in the air.
But they were up there, baby!
Or at least the fat drag queen.
But actually this parade was far from over. And I thought Caribana was slow!
The parade started at 1pm and this pic is at the starting point, at 3:30pm. So I would not have to be here all night, to get a lot of these shots I walked upstream, to the staging area.
And by 4pm (three hours after the parade started) it was still packed with many more floats. And at the speed they were going, all at least an hour away from the starting point.
I'm sure it's still going on as you are reading this.
But...nobody seemed to be a hurry.
Everybody was happy just celebrating lots of different shapes, sizes, colours, boxers, briefs, pierces, punctures and every last tattooed, dangley bit.
Way to go TO!
Let's see Rio top this!
