We got back a couple of hours ago from San Francisco's Gay Pride Parade and it's been a scramble to get my pictures downloaded and put into this photodiary. I hope you enjoy!

We were running a bit late, but we managed to surface from the underground just as the Dykes on Bikes were leading the parade. Not the best shot, but at least I got it.


Bit of local color.


The ACLU rocks!


One of my favorite groups.


Several tribes were represented.


The cheerleaders are always a big hit.


I had a little flirt going with the beautiful officers.


We love you Latin America!


One of the most important reasons marriage counts.


Not sure who these guys were, but they were wonderful.


This was too funny. This group was walking directly in front of Wells Fargo's contingent.


Planned Parenthood.


Too cute.


The crowd really cheered for this one.


Facebook was colorful.


Fancy drag.


Leather goodness.


These folks were really having a great time.


I had always suspected as much.


To all my brothers and sisters, I wish you a Happy Pride and a year of love, peace and progress.

Thanks to tonight's Top Comments contributors! Let us hear from YOU
when you find that proficient comment.

From Expatjourno:

Marykk gives a great explanation to the question Frank Cocozzelli asks in his diary Why The Hierarchy Fears The Nuns.
From bronte17:
Seneca Doane very aptly details how priorities were out of order in the most excellent legal analysis, The SCOTUS: Is an extreme constitutional winter coming? from Armando.

It doesn't get any better than this comment and the diary. It's why Daily Kos is one of the most outstanding blogs on the internet through all these years.

From RL Miller:
When the DailyKos community gets snarkin' on pie, cake, waffles, donuts, and assorted sweet things that Mitt Romney can't name, there's just too many winners. Some of my favorites are:

-- Dr Erich Bloodaxe RN's story on how he went out for donuts and ended up driving a prostitute all over town (it's in 2 comments);

-- Snapples:
Is There No End To The Deception? (8+ / 0-)

Does Darrell Issa know about this?  I certainly hope not, because if he's grounds for something or other.

This should be investigated.  Hopefully, between his appearances on Meet the Press, FOX News & This Week on Sunday, Darrell will have time to launch an investigation plus issue a bunch of subpoenas.

Darrell will spare NO taxpayer money to ferret out the details of this latest bamboozlement.  By God, his chief investigative counsel must be working on this as we speak.

Or.....Darrell's chief investigative counsel, Stephen Castor, is trying to cook up another deal to stop Eric Holder's contempt vote in exchange for the resignation of Lanny Breuer.  Lanny is Holder's Assistant AG.....who may have been Issa's initial target.

You can't spell 'Kenyan Socialist' without CAKE (14+ / 0-)

in PI there is truth (16+ / 0-)


and of course the photo of the Obama pie - photo posted by dmhlt66 near the top of the diary, was baked by a Kossack whose name I don't recall in '08.

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
