How John Lewis does his Pride parade shuffle

Add this share

U.S. Rep. John Lewis just can't help himself. The 74-year-old Atlanta Congressman never stops being gay amazing and did it again on Sunday as he jogged along the Pride parade route.

When the Pride staple reached the intersection of 10th and Peachtree streets, he bounded across the street to shake hands on both sides. His aides could hardly keep up. Lewis makes LGBT equality part of his everyday pitch. He's a regular at the HRC Atlanta Dinner, tweets about gay marriage and co-chairs a marriage equality effort across the South.
