Stockholm Pride 2010

We got a pretty good spot in front of Berns to see the Stockholm Pride parade yesterday. Stu & I both had a great time (to attest, we stood in that spot for well over an hour watching!) The paraders consisted of all kinds: young, old, male, female and in-between, white, black, purple, teachers, cops, vegans, bears, twinks, moms, dads, kids, government officials, political parties, public transportation offices, religious institutions, even a few horses and dogs, all singing, dancing and many wearing absolutely ridiculous outfits. It was inspiring to see everyone so supportive, and heartbreaking to think of the discrimination and torment some of the paraders had encountered in their lives. And it made me wish I had a better camera, but I did catch a few shots:
