St. Pete Pride – A look back


I really love the St. Pete Pride parade.

I have managed to attend the event most years and shot hundreds of pictures.

This year since the event is moving to downtown I thought it would be interesting to take a look back at past Pride parades.

These photo galleries are all originals most not edited or retouched. They are in their raw form and so almost all exceeded 2.5 MB. So, before you click download for a whole Gallery make sure you have the storage room and some time.
 
I have chosen 2013 and 2014 these were both exciting years and great events.

2013 was especially exciting as it rained, and you can see the rain effects in many of the photos near the end of this gallery.

There are over  675 photos in this Gallery, and you can see them by clicking here St. Pete Pride 2013.

If you were at this Pride event, you just may be in one of these photographs. Check them out.

2014 was a special year for Pride. With a new administration in City Hall, and a new view of the Pride event.

There was a proclamation signed by the new Mayor and Pride Flag was raised over City Hall for the first time.

This Gallery contains a group of photos from that first flag flying, and they are among my most favorites of the thousands of photos I have in my library.

There are over 300 photos in this gallery you see them by clicking 2014 Pride Flag Flying

What I like most about the Pride Parade is the faces. Everyone seems to be so totally in tune with one another.

For a few hours, people from the LGBT community can put away their fears and concerns meet old friends, make some new ones, share some remembrances, laugh and have a good time in a place that welcomes them.
