This weekend marked the 39th year for L.A. Pride, which for many was one of the more positive years, considering the climate due to the current status of Prop 8. It may have been one of the largest with more than 100,000 people attending.

A good number of politicos showed up, including contender for Governor and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who possibly may run against him. Found on motorcycles were City Councilmembers Dennis Zine and Jan Perry and City Attorney-elect Carmen Trutanich.
