The rally started with some cool biker-chics, but here was the first welcoming "Boston Pride" banner. To the right, you can see the Governor giving a big thumbs-up to everyone. I got another picture of him, but it didn't come out.
Now, back to the people who really started this thing off - the cool biker chics. I don't know who I'd be more afraid of being pulled over by, the bikers or the police officers who drove ahead of the route.
Behold, the power of Kermit:
Though, the power of my camera? Not so much. It's important to note that the confetti from the environmental float was bio-degradable. I made my friend test with his saliva, just to make sure. Also, all the Kermit moments were from different floats and groups... amazing!
Of course, Dorothy (or should I say, Dorothe?) made his entrance as well.
I took about 100 more pictures, but I'll spare my readers all the details (and bandwidth). Suffice it to say, lots more politicians, some drag, Unitarians, Christians and religions of all sorts, a great Latino presence - and, best of all, tens of thousands of people cheering and laughing, happy and excited just to be out even if the weather was crap. Heck, there were even two Sodomites-Go-To-Hell type protesters and we all had a good ol' chuckle about that. They didn't matter to us, because no one can ruin the pride of being a free American citizen.
