I had a great time at Portland Pride today, carrying the banner announcing Laura Calvo as the winner of the "Spirit of Pride" award (seen here riding the Wells Fargo stagecoach with Mayor-elect Sam Adams). But once I got to the end of the parade and doubled back a bit to watch the rest of the parade, I noticed something kind of odd.
