As Pride has advanced, so has the pageantry.

This photo from the 2005 San Francisco Pride offers the glitter, the glam and the skin we’ve come to associate with sophisticated Pride entries.

The plumage is spectacular. The costumes, enticing. The dancers, both exotic and erotic.

We’re fascinated, too, with the much-interested observer, perhaps a parade official, perhaps the float’s technician, who’s getting up close and personal with the dancers.

But, then, who could fault that? If this float doesn’t engage you in the party of Pride, we’re not sure what will.
