Painted faces for Pride

This past Sunday San Francisco’s 2016 Pride parade danced down Market Street. 

The joyous parade seemed especially important, and poignant in light of the recent atrocity in Orlando Florida. Despite the tragedy, the LGBTQIA community, and supporters, arrived adorned and ready to celebrate this year’s theme “For Racial and Economic Justice”. 

Love is typically a sentiment felt not seen; At Pride love can be seen in every direction. 

Love is love. 

Love is beautiful.

Love is colorful. 

Put your hands in the air if you care about equality!
