    My partner and I went to the Gay Pride festival in Fort Lauderdale and had a blast! There were so many exhibits and the AIDS quilt made us both cry.
    They were giving out free hepatitis shots and they were so many other informative booths.
    My partner won a VIP pass to a hot gay strip club too.
    It is so great to get out amongst other GLBT's.

    Glad you had a nice time. It didn't look like a very big parade. I expected Gay Pride to be more publicized beforehand.

    I haven't been to the Pride Festival in Fort Lauderdale in many years because, in my view, it devolved into a trade show. However, I'm glad the event still exists.

    Didn't know that Pride in Ft. Lauderdale was this weekend.
    I fly down to Miami Beach for the week on Monday. Would have been fun to come down earlier and check this out.

    I hope to attend some pride week parade some day. I'm sure it would be amazing to be surrounded by others who feel like I do. Till then, on with the pride clothing and accessories.

    Off to the Pride event - we have two - another one in June for the traditional time

    This one we have due to the large number of visitors, while the one in June is more locals.

    Both are well run - pasing out alot of good info as well as a good day of entertainment and being with friends.

    The rain kept quite a few people inside all day. We had a good time, there is one coming to Miami on April 19th, we're going to try to make that one as well.

    You have a point, there were a lot of trade vendors there; but there was a lot of political and health booths too. They were giving out hepatitis shots at the health care booth and free dental screenings.
