1. That was a HUGE band....
The Alabama Trail Maids were sort of a funny group to follow, though, LOL

8. Love the Trail Maids followed them, I thought it was a drag group at first, ha, I'd wear the dress
to get me in the parade (I'm a guy). Seeing this band perform and perform so WELL brought me pride - God bless 'em!

2. Thanks for posting this
I don't have a sound card at work, so I could only watch the parade, and I missed all the music! This was GREAT!

3. So cool that the LGBA band was there.
I've been a member of a LGBA member band in the past. I remember performing at their very first concert in the Hollywood Bowl. Wish I could have made it and marched with them!

13. the folks in that band looked so-o-o-o-o fucking proud to be there . . .
kudos to them, and thanks to the Obama administration for inviting them, right wing objections be damned . . .

I've been saying all along that as long as Obama does what's right, he will succeed . . . and so far, he's doing an awful lot that's right . . . a few mis-steps, to be sure, but I just write them off to neophyte inexperience . . . I do believe that his heart is in the right place, and that he'll prove it in time . . .

15. Omg! They were outstanding! And much bigger than I'd thought they would be!
The majorette (is that the right word? Baton major? Dude with the baton?) was perfect!

I haven't been to Pride for years because of the crowds but maybe the band can be seen on line somewhere. Loved them!
