Pride this year was a little scattered. There were some terrifying threats surrounding the parade, a whole lot of rain followed by a scorching bout of sunshine, and so much glitter. Everywhere. This strangely electric combination yielded a constant stream of robust fashion choices traipsing through the streets: flowers, neon, nudity, and (of course) rainbows were all top attire choices, but certainly not an enforced standard. There were also some people dressed as unicorns and a LOT of free neon snapback hats. Even the Pinky’s Nails crew was there doing on-site nail art. It was like entering a magical world somewhere over the rainbow, where colour runs rampant and suits are nowhere in sight.
