    The weather was great, and so was the parade. I have a lot of photos and I'll try to explain them all.

    1. The Stanley Cup float with some of the Blackhawks. This year was a milestone in that two of our sports teams had floats- the Cubs and the Blackhawks.
    2. The Cubs float
    3. More of the Cubs float
    4. For those of you who think gay people hate America.
    5. And more of the Vets Association.

    What do the Cubs know about pride? 101 years say what? :p

    Obviously you cropped out the part of the flag that's on fire

    /right wing response ;)

    I'm sure he didn't mean anything bad by it. I know I didn't. I just don't miss a chance to poke fun at the Cubs ;)

    Now hopefully you'll get gay marriage before the Cubs win a world series. Or else you'll be waiting a long, long time.

    1. The Center on Halsted is our community center. It serves all kinds of functions, the most important being helping gay and lesbian homeless youth. I give them lots of money.
    2. Lambda Legal, who do a hell of a lot to fight for us.
    3. Lovely Latinas. :)
    4. Who doesn't love dancing, gay cowboys?
    5. There are gay people in Israel? Who knew? :)

    1. The Sara Lee bus.
    2. The Sidetrack float- Sidetrack is a huge local club.
    3. I don't know what to say about this. It was just a bunch of people covered in balloons. But it was really cool.
    4. The Filipino homos. :) Too awesome.
    5. The Pepsi float- lots of corporations this year.

    I bet a lot of the guys at that parade were staring at the Lovely Latina on the front of that float! :eek:

    There's a missed opportunity for back brace sponsorship there.

    I was joking. And actually, Israel has a very long way to go yet.

    Given that they're fake, probably not. ;)

    Tons of them. We usually get a lot of major banks and such, but it really is getting to be more and more things like, Pepsi, Budweiser, Miller, etc.

    We had lots of churches with floats in the parade as well. I'll have to get the pics from my friend.

    Of all those floats and pcs th only one I did not like and would felt was inaporpet for the parade was the what looks like the strip club one. My grounds for that one is I do not care for those type of place (straight or gay) because I do not like the idea of any one being degraded to nothing more than a peace of meat and is seem to send he wrong message to kids.

    Otherwise I think how everything look was great.

    San Diego has that too - it seems every 5th float is either a church or a politician (its not until the middle of July though).

    What's wrong with cute guys in shorts? Seriously? And Sidetrack is a regular ol' club. Plus, it was pretty hot yesterday.

    PS- personally, I love being objectified. :D

    Stanley Cup

    A friend of mine got the limo driver that was transporting the Stanley Cup to snap a picture if it before it was taken out.
