Pride Portland 2015

Today was my first time catching the yearly Pride Portland parade. SPOILER ALERT: it ends with an enormous rainbow banner carried by hundreds of people through the streets of downtown Portland. The overall mood was one of enthusiasm and support, a nice thing to see during these troubled times. Here are some photos to give you an idea of the vibe. Also some of my favorite posts from around the ‘net.

Folks all over the web were posting about Portland Pride
