Seattle Pride Parade 2014

Today Seattle had its 40th annual Pride Parade.  I had no idea it was that old.  And I’m a little embarrassed to say, as a native only a year older than this parade, I’ve never been to one.  Or maybe I have, but just don’t remember it.  I’ll remember this one though.  It was amazing.  All 4 hours of it (longest parade in the world maybe?).

When I got off the bus on 3rd and Virginia, I had no idea where a good place to watch the parade from would be.  I found this spot on a whim.  Lucky for me, it was right in front of these lovely Emcee Queens.  They were very informative and damn hilarious.

Macklemore was there too, there’s a video clip of him below. For now, here’s a giant balloon octopus.

Even the Space Needle raised the Pride flag.  Because Seattle rules.  In Seattle, you can be who you want, and it’s cool.
