This past Sunday marked the annual Pride celebration in Los Angeles, and since many of us were already out getting farmer’s tans and paying too much for bottled water anyway, we gathered for an informal meet-up at the end of the parade route outside of The Normandie Room.
A few of us AfterEllen.com vloggers (from Cherry Bomb, Ghostella’s Tomb, We’re Getting Nowhere, and Brunch with Bridget) and some of the women from 3Way were in attendance, and we were all thrilled to meet our fellow readers. Thanks to everyone who braved the mayhem and came out to say hello.
Below are some of the photos we took at the event, and some from readers who sent them in (thanks!). Happy Pride!
