2015 Boston Pride/Gay Parade

Fun giant inflatable soccer ball

On 6/13, it's that time of year again! Gays, tourists, supporters, and associated company all come to celebrate and love, with the probable exception of hardcore Republicans.

National politicians like Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representative Joe Kennedy III didn't attend this year unlike last year's cloudy day event, but Marty Walsh, the mayor of Boston, came. The weather was also very hot and sunny. 

Anyways, I'll begin the photo and comment dump with a shout-out to the ebullient African-American lady behind me, who screamed, "Happy pride!!" repeatedly, said that this was her Mardi Gras, and embodied the spirit of ecstasy, joy, and American optimism.

This time, I didn't stand through the full event out of tedium and heat, so I'll end this with an extremely awkward photo with the Qatar Airways guys.
