No Turning Back

What's hotter?

Myself attending my first ever Pride Parade as a spectator on one of the hottest days of the year?

Watching perfectly toned and tanned male specimens shake their booties to Cher on the floats that go by?

Seeing all types of communities come together to express their belief in freedom of love? (Did you know there is a Gay Square Dance Club and Gay Bollywood Association?)

Seeing corporate Canada show their support in what they recognize as a legitimate market of citizens who celebrate diversity?

I don't know the answer to that... but I do know that after the 2005 Vancouver Pride Parade my heart is thoroughly warmed.

The 7-11 float from last year was missing!

It featured a huge shiny slurpee cup overflowing with the colours of pride.

This year I loved the cross dresser with the wedding cake for a hat.

Glad you had a great time during your first parade Jessica!

that slurpee thing would have been sweet! I liked the paramedics... they had a stretcher with rainbow coloured IV bags!
