  • Insane Clown Posse!

  • Thousands of photos taken this weekend and THIS is what POP chooses to represent our people. I call BOOP on that.

    : )

      I like these photos and thousands were not uploaded to the PoPville flickr pool… 🙁

      • It’s probably too much of a pain, but I wish you could increase the submission limit on weekends when there are events like this. When each person who photographed the event can only get 3 photos in before the post you don’t end up with much of a selection.

          I agree, I was not able to go to the parade this year but I went to the festival and didn’t have time to upload anything.

          • I only brought my camera to the festival and had to rush through the processing a bit to make sure my photos made it into the bloggers’ roundups. I have to admit that’s half the reason I photograph these things. 🙂

    • Huh? This isn’t a representation of “our people”, it’s a representation of the Pride events.
      A representation of LGBT people would be pretty boring– people doing yardwork, commuting, raising kids, eating dinner, etc. 🙂

        You mean like “normal” people!! LOL. I couldn’t attend the parade which is one of my favorites of the year because I was shooting a wedding, the gay uncles made the whole wedding much more fun, every wedding should have some gay uncle taking care of things 😀

    • FWIW I like this selection better than DCist’s (and they were probably working from the same pool of photos, more or less).

    • Oh I stand corrected I only saw the first two pics, the rest did not load, that’s better : )

    • I saw the three in the top pic at the corner of 14th and U where they were alled homophobic slurs by someone selling Street Sense. The one on the far left turned around, walked back and asked what his problem was and asked for his name. The vendor provided a name and then called them “Homo b*tches.” I told the vendor to chill the eff out, not cool dude. As I caught up with the three I heard him tell his friends he was going to call Street Sense in the morning.

      So yes, with the back story now, you can see that confronting hate does represent our community.
