Bisbee Pride

Bisbee’s Gay Pride Weekend is here again. The day started off with a parade, and somehow I managed to end up in it. That wasn’t what I’d planned. I just wanted some photos but got sucked in to the festivities. I walked with my partner, and a group of gay men cheered us for being straight and still being in the parade.

Crowds lined the street downtown.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were here again.

A fabulous bus from the Burning Man festival was in the parade, too, carrying some wonderfully dressed folks.

Two women painted their breasts in the rainbow colors and proudly walked the parade route.

And there were even gay zombies.

Ah, Bisbee!

    1. Bisbee is a town of under 7,000 people. I had thought it was probably the smalls town in the country with a Pride celebration, but that is not true. There are towns of under 2,000 that have day-long celebrations!
