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:

O'Donnell (JFOD) is currently a 'Political Correspondent' on the comedy news television show 'Redacted Tonight w/ Lee Camp' on RT America. According to the Comedy Central Insider, "John F. O'Donnell is one of the more explosive comics in New York City. On stage, he's like a tightly capped liter of soda filled with lit fireworks." John has been featured in The New York Times, The LA Times and The Huffington Post, as well as being one of Comedy Central's Fresh Faces of Comedy. Most recently, JFOD has been given a Congressional Press Credential and will be covering the Presidential Debates on location for 'Redacted Tonight,' which, if you know him, seems like a terrible breach of security.
