Houston Gay Pride, 2017

Houston’s Gay Pride Festival was held for the second year downtown in front of City Hall in Houston.  This time the police made no attempt to keep participants out of the reflecting pool.   There were far more women there than men although I suspect the numbers reversed in the evening for the parade.  Temperatures were kept reasonable by rain and clouds making it only almost as hot as hell rather than hotter.  The girls were wilder this year than in the past with several sporting pasties.

Sorry that it has taken me 6 weeks to get these published, but I haven’t been home much during this time.  Don’t make any assumptions about anyone’s sexual orientation.  I chat with the people I photograph and some of it is surprising.  The gal in the rainbow stripped bikini is a former suicide girl.  In the featured image is a computational computing wiz.

More photos from the 2016 Houston Art Car Parade, the largest in the world. It was held downtown this year due to construction on Allen Parkway, its usual location.  I have to thank all these people for making Houston one of the most interesting places in the US to live.  Especially, I want to thank the many people who allow me to photograph them year after year.
