Gay Pride Parade with the Baton Show Lounge Girls!

It was such an honor to ride in the 2009 Gay Pride Parade this year!  I was invited by Jim Flint to ride on the Baton Show Lounge float and it was a thrill of a lifetime.  Jim has participated in every single one of the 40 parades to date and he said this one was the biggest one ever.  With 250 floats involved and close to 650,000-700,000 people I agree--I've never seen anything like it.  Everyone was there, obviously, and since the weather was perfect, they were all in a great mood!  Senator hopeful Alexi Giannoulias was right behind us and was a real crowd pleaser.  What a wonderful day for everyone.  The parade's Grand Marshall, Alexandra Billings, said it this way, "The parade is for everybody.  Everyone needs to live in their joy and celebrate what it's like to be free.  This is what the parade is all about."   These photos say it all.....
