Today my husband and I went to Portland’s Gay Pride Parade.  Not only was it a beautiful day to be outside, I felt that, in the wake of the recent tragedy in Orlando, it was important to go and show our support for our LGBT community.  The mood was celebratory and full of messages of love and inclusion.  Here are some photos of today’s parade.
