That video put a big smile on my face. I loved the Gay Pride Parades in NYC. And my friends all went to Coney Island to the Mermaid Parade yesterday. They're so damn much fun.
I've been to the parade in NYC and our little party can't compare. I've also been to the one in San Francisco, in 1978. That was an extravaganza back then, I can't imagine how much bigger and grander it is today. And of course I have seen and been in at least 17 Chicago (My home city) parades.
.....and you have the photos to prove it. Alicia in her cheerleader getup was just a spring chicken back then.
