Photo Of The Day: PRIDE Parading In Pink On Melrose

by Emily Green · June 13, 2011

If you happened to be in the WeHo area at any point this weekend, you probably saw some truly astonishing getups and visions, from rainbow hula-hoop fairies to herds of grown men taking a casual stroll down the sidewalk wearing nothing but matching junderpants. It was, of course, all part of LA PRIDE, as Angelenos came out in droves to celebrate equality and party in the streets for the LGBT community. The image above captures what I was sitting behind in traffic yesterday afternoon on Melrose: a pinker than pink car with three people sitting on top out of the sunroof waving to passersby as if on a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Oh, and see pink flamingo out the left side? Cute. Although there was an actual city-sanctioned parade in honor of LA PRIDE earlier in the day, this pinked-out crew took the liberty of staging their own on the busy avenue. And we have to hand it to them, they looked really spectacular as they cruised down Melrose and came to complete stops at green lights in regular street traffic to pose for pedestrians taking photos.
