New Orleans Pride, 2017
Pride this year was a blast! We teamed up with Skinz and Bonez, and they provided a drumbeat we could walk to. We decided this year to walk the entirelength of the Pride Parade, and our interactions with the crowd were nothing less than sublime. Before the Parade, we participated in the Block Party at the Phoenix, and we sold Jell-O shots to raise money for several causes. We were lucky to be next to the booth ofthe NOLA Pups and Handlers on one side and the HRC on the other. Many people came by to share a smile, say hello, and buy a cool, refreshing shot on a very hot day.
