Pride and Celebration

It has been Gay Pride week in San Francisco and today we went to see the Gay Pride Parade on Market Street. This was the fourth time that we had a chance to see this event and it was as always breathtaking.

More than 750.000 people gathered on Market Street and in the Civic Center to celebrate not just Gay Pride but also what is so special about San Francisco - it doesn't matter who you are, what you do or whom you love, you are always going to be welcome in this wonderful city.

More people partied together than do actually live in San Francisco and you couldn't see a single angry face or nasty incident all afternoon. That so many people can have such a great time together without any major problems is a testament to the kind of people living out here in the Bay Area.
