LA Pride ’17
Well, that was a day of all kind of awesome. It started off with Resist March in the morning. Was worried I would run late and might have to play catch up. Well, I got there around when expected, but made it there before everyone started moving. One thing I was worried about was some of the party like atmosphere might be gone, but it was still there. A lot of good signs made, and everyone seemed to have been having a good time. It was a long walk to the end of the route from Hollywood between Highland and La Brea, to Santa Monica blvd, just past Robertson where their were some speakers like Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters.
One thing that I’ve always liked about the parade is the fact there are people giving some stuff out. Mostly something cheap like sunglasses, food samples or drinks. First I saw someone handing out something calling Larabar which I remember from last year. Still good. Also tried for the first time, propel, from gatorade. I liked that a lot. And some other drink called Maxwell. It’s mainly for mixing into drinks, and what makes it interesting is it’s in a resealable can. Nice to know the future is now here.
Another thing that I liked is that after the parade usually, the streets start opening up after all the floats have gone by, but it took a little while longer for that to happen because of the march. I enjoyed walking in the streets extra because of that. I did so much walking that day, and I really enjoyed myself more then I thought I would. It was a good day.
