GROUPS FROM OTHER
There was a Russian contingent marching, and a group of bagpipers from England, and what was really moving to me was a group of people who left countries where being gay is a crime, and emigrated to the U.S. to be safe. That choked me up!
DRAG QUEENS -
|We liked these outfits, too. :)|
|Ella Fitzgerald, drag queen and nice umbrella holder|
|An outfit we liked|

|The Hilton Hotels|
|Bagpipe group from England|
|The float with the Dolly Parton drag queen !|
The support gave me chills. What a different, more accepting world it is today from when I was a kid in the 1960s-70s and had to hide in fear. (of course, gay people in the south still have to hide to keep jobs and not be beaten up).
|A beach-themed float|
What a difference the younger generation has made by rejecting the ridiculous fears from conservatives our generation. The world is a more accepting, welcoming place. You can see that from this parade.
