Gay Atlanta celebrates in the streets at Pride parade

The size queens of Atlanta Pride did it again, staging a parade full of more than 200 entries that snaked its way through Midtown on Sunday. Rainbow revelry indeed.

There were porn stars, strippers and grand marshals mixing with drag queens, jocks, gay cops, gay-friendly politicians stumping for your votes and scores of religious organizations ready to help you repent your cocktailing sins from Pride weekend. Even Baton Bob and Kandi Burruss from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

The hours-long celebration opened with its traditional dykes on bikes, included a pack of Clydesdales and closed with a fleet of city street sweepers and trash trucks. Even homo haters joined the route, though some creative pansies shut them down.
