Dykes on Bikes open the march.
Gratuitous photo 2. I was bit slow with the camera.
The march was led off by Victoria's Premier Andrews and his wife. No too far behind were police marching.
The bubbles were great fun.
Manhunt was personal hook up service. I suppose it is no more than an app now.

The Country Fire Authority is a volunteer organisation to fight bush fires and fires in outer suburban areas. This truck is from the area where my Ex Sis in Law live. Apparently one of the fire fighters is gay and the rest were there to support him.
The State Emergency Service is another volunteer organisation. If your house roof blows off, they will come and cover it with plastic sheet until it can be permanently repaired. Both the SES and CFA above do receive government funding, but the workers on the ground volunteer their labour.
Dolly Diamond passed by so quickly, with her name spelt out in balloons.

Love makes a family. Who could argue with that.
Very busy. A record crowd apparently.
Lots of colour. Unlike the glitz of Sydney Mardi Gras parade, Pride March is a community event with mostly community organisations involved but it does need to be bright and attractive.
What's a parade without drag queens.
One of Dolly Diamond's letters escaped.
Is it a Cadillac?
Second part another day.
