All Fun at 2013 Pride Parade
Milwaukee's straightest parade flies its gay flag proudly.
The Milwaukee Pride Parade delighted attendees with colorful floats and lively music on Sunday afternoon. From drag queens to volleyball teams, people of all walks of life made the low-budget parade a high-energy success. The parade was well attended with an audience made up of the LGBT community, neighbors, parade enthusiasts, and a few confused area bar patrons. In the end it was quite similar to a lot of other downtown parades, just a bit more colorful.
As my colleague Michael Horne noted in his weekly Plenty of Horne column, no parade in Milwaukee has a gayer crowd or straighter route. I would add that I don’t think there is a parade where both those in attendance and in the parade seem to be having so much fun (the later 2:00 pm start time certainly helps).
