Cool set .Love the costumes, nice and colourful. I think my favorites are the person on the roller skates, nice action shot, and the two dogs, real cute.

Certainly colourful. What is the Halifax Pride Parade about?

Funny that you don't have them in your neck of the woods as I believed them to be pretty much everywhere. I know they're all over Canada for sure.

"Pride parades for the LGBT community (also known as gay pride parades, pride events and pride festivals) are events celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) culture. The events also at times serve as demonstrations for legal rights such as same-sex marriage. Most pride events occur annually and many take place around June to commemorate the Stonewall riots, a pivotal moment in the modern LGBT rights movement." - From Pride parade - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pride_parade)

We have one big one (now I know what it is) called the Sydney Mardi Grae ... world famous we are told.

Ahh, can't say that I've heard of it but I suspect many others have :)

Sometimes I think they tell us things are famous here in Aussie to make us feel like the rest of the world gives a crap :)

Actually over here in the UK we hear about the Sydney march every year. London has a big one as well, but the Sydney one is allegedly one of the biggest such events in the world - as far as I know only Brazil has bigger ones.

I bet the one in Sydney is pretty spectacular. I'd love to go to one in NY or San Francisco. Here's a few more that I took:
