2012’s Capital Pride Parade sparked cheers from both the crowd and parade participants. Per usual, the annual event was the culmination of more then a week of events organized by Capital Pride. Members of the LGBT community and their allies came out in droves to celebrate the event that has won City Paper’s “Best of” Award for Best Parade 4 years in a row. Looks as fabulous as ever:
