  • Carmen Carrera In The San Francisco Pride Parade With Her Family

    <blockquote>It's an honor to interact with so many politicians and influential people. I brought my family. I'm here with my husband and my daughter. This has been an amazingly positive and inspirational experience for us.</blockquote>--Carmen Carrera, Celebrity Grand Marshal

  • Grand Marshal Rebecca Prozan (Left) And Wife Julia Adams Enjoy Pink Saturday

    <blockquote>Tomorrow is my parents' 56th wedding anniversary, and it's been really incredible to be a Grand Marshal and highlight the issue of marriage. My wife Julia and I have been together for 10 years, we've been married three times. I am really grateful to have her along for this experience.</blockquote>--Rebecca Prozan, Director of Community Outreach for the District Attorney's Office and San Francisco Pride Community Grand Marshal (Photo credit: <a href="http://portphotio.carbonmade.com" target="_hplink">Jon Wai-keung Lowe</a>)

  • Willam Belli At Trannyshack Vs. Big Top

    <blockquote>I need to be entertaining. I try to be an entertainer first, <em>then</em> a drag queen. I try to do something different. I sing my own music. I'm over lip-synching.</blockquote>--Willam Belli (Photo credit: <a href="http://portphotio.carbonmade.com" target="_hplink">Jon Wai-keung Lowe</a>)

  • Karmin At San Francisco Pride

    <blockquote>San Francisco is one of our most favoritest cities! (Is that a real word?) Gay audiences were the most supportive for us when we first started posting on YouTube. We love our gay and lesbian fans!</blockquote>--Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan of Karmin (Photo credit: <a href="http://portphotio.carbonmade.com" target="_hplink">Jon Wai-keung Lowe</a>)

  • Swallow Your Pride At Harry Denton's Starlight Room

    LGBT ambassador for Stolichnaya Patrik Gallineux, performer/part-time mermaid Cassandra Cass, and Community Grand Marshal Gary Virginia <blockquote>When a life is threatened with incarceration, torture, or murder, that person deserves a global response. The heinous, targeted killing of Ugandan gay-rights activist David Kato will never leave my mind, nor images of gay or suspected gay men hung or bludgeoned to death in Iraq. When a lesbian or gay man is facing deportation back to a dangerous land, it is the responsibility of all of us to stop texting about a Groupon deal and start tweeting to embassies. Too many of us live in the comfort of great numbers of queers in the Bay Area and forget who fought for the freedoms before us, and who is begging for our help around the world.</blockquote>--Gary Virginia (Photo credit: <a href="http://portphotio.carbonmade.com" target="_hplink">Jon Wai-keung Lowe</a>)
