Gay Pride

 The Joburg Pride Board hosted Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender and supporters of the community on Saturday 2nd October at the Zoo lake park to celebrate sexual diversity 

The 2010 Pride Parade, featuring a host of colourful floats and thousands of revellers, kicked off from Zoo Lake Sports Club at 10am through the streets of Rosebank. This is the first time I attended a gay pride festival, the event was a spectacle, filled with drama and drag queens amongst the many that attended, It was a very colourful day with thousands of happy people from all over the country taking to the streets. Some outfits were modest while others pulled out all the stops and took it to the extreme. 

Within the parameter of the park, patrons were only allowed to use the pink currency where they had a kiosk where real money could be exchanged for "gay tokens". The event also staged participants for the upcoming Mr. Gay and Lesbian South Africa, contestants of the event were showcased to roaring applauses from the thousand strong crowd. An event of this magnitude can only be made possible by the right sponsorship and this event was sponsored by 94.7,the joburg city council, power play the drink, the well being organisation and several other businesses.

It was 30 Degrees today in Joburg, perfect weather according to some, I also had the opportunity to take several photos, the subjects of my photos were more than willing to strike a pose whenever I puled out my er... camera, check them out here or just click on flickr photostream on the side. Great music, good company and the village all made for a fun filled day thats secured the Joburg Gay pride day a permanent spot on my calendar,
