WeHo's 45th Annual PRIDE Parade packed the streets on Sunday for an all-day celebration.

The parade was attended by about 400,000 people and featured lots of floats, rainbow flags, revelers and even a few decked out dogs.

We caught a glimpse of attorney Gloria Allred and her 'supremes' (judges, of course). She was joined by Jan and April, two nurses from Michigan who would like to adopt five children with special needs, but who are not able to fulfill their family dreams until the law allows them to legally marry, CBS LA reports.

We also saw Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer and Adam Rodriguez riding on a Magic Mike XXL float blasting "My Pony"; Grand Marshals Rev. Troy Perry and Zoey, a 13-year-old transgender activist; and the cast of Transparent, the parade's community Grand Marshals. Perry was a co-founder of not only the first Pride Parade in L.A., but the first Pride Parade in the world. It occurred in Hollywood in 1970.
