I feel sooooooo old when I say this, but I can remember when Indianapolis didn't have a Pride celebration. One year a small group of us just had a small picnic at a downtown park; I don't think there were more than 25-30 of us there. The parade was added a few years ago and it's the highlight of the entire day for me. This year's attendance had to set a new record for attendance; it was packed all day long and the weather was perfect.
I grabbed a couple of shoutouts that I'll run on Bilerico-Indiana and Jerame videotaped the entire parade. We'll edit it down some and post it in the next couple of days. While he recorded the parade, I snapped some shots of the festival and parade. Slideshow of the pics after the jump.
