Girl-on-Gallery: Autostraddle Pride Parade

Along with a hearty crew of gay bloggers spearheaded by Father Tony, Autostraddle.com marched with the Gay Bloggers & Digital Activists group in the 2009 New York City Pride Parade, swiftly balancing the gender divide with (almost) its entire intern army. Other lady-marchers were Grace of Grace the Spot and Brenda of Curly McDimple!

Watch as we wait three hours for our section to start marching, lose a few team members, and then valiantly march for a really really long time! ‘Til we got to Union Square when we had to cut out to go get ready for Rodeo Disco. A fun and pridey time was had by all, and we even got tiny little tans.
