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.
