Saturday/ Seattle Pride’s 40th anniversary

It is gay Pride week in Seattle (and several other cities in the USA, notably San Francisco and New York City as well).  The first parade – more a protest march, in those days! – was held in 1974.  The parade in downtown Seattle is tomorrow, but the festivities has been on-going throughout the weekend and especially on Capitol Hill here in Seattle.  Bryan, Gary and I took a walk around Pike-Pine Streets and down to Broadway to check out the revelry (after which we called it a night and went home!).

The friendly guy with the flag noticed my interest and wanted to sell me one – only $20, he said. I was tempted to buy one but ended up not doing so.
