Bisbee’s Gay Pride weekend was just this last weekend, June 17-19. Once again, the town was full of men and women of all ages and persuasions. For me, the highlight is always the parade.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to walk this year, but my partner and I did get a great spot along the route to watch. I lost more than a few shots when he waved just as I clicked the shutter, but I still got some decent ones.
Thankfully, the parade was held at 7PM to avoid the day’s heat. Due to the shade, though, some of the colors’ vibrancy is missing.
The first in the parade were some of the ever-growing group that call themselves The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. You’ll see some of them in later photos and recognize them by their costuming and white faces.
Then came some of the B.R.A.T.S. – the Bisbee Rolling Arts Transport Society. They sponsor a wonderful art coaster parade each year and some join in the Pride parade.
The one below is the Bisbee for Bernie car.
Then came a person with a lovely tiara. I don’t know if this was a cross-dressing man, a woman, or a transgender person. But the effect is great.
