LA Pride came to West Hollywood this weekend. It featured Molly Ringwald playing the part of a Greek goddess in a toga, Lil' Kim drawing a massive crowd, a penis ice sculpture, girls in pasties and lots of totally ripped men prancing around in next to nothing. There were also straight allies, churches proclaiming their love for gays and a broad spectrum of the LGBTQ folks enjoying an event dedicated to being loud and proud.
