Even with the haze of the smoke of the wild fires ravaging California overhead and the fog common to the Bay area, the spirit of Pride 2008 was alive today. I was at the Civic Center early before the crowds gathered and enjoyed going by the booths.
I also listened to some live performances on the stage including the San Francisco Opera. What was particularly stood out was the lines in the Marriage Equality booth. There is an energy and buzz about to defeat efforts to put by conservative religious right groups to put a ban on same sex marriage on the California State Constitution.
I have never seen a Pride celebration so politically electrified like this one in a long time. The young people are especially vocal.
Enjoy the photos….. I will be posting more. Happy Pride!
