Pride Parade in the City - Tech companies galore

It has been years since I haven't walked in a contingent at the SF Pride Parade. So when the opportunity at work came, I took it.

The Pride parade was huge. Lots of contingents especially representing companies around the SF Bay Area. Tech companies galore!

My coworkers and I were all gathering around 10:30am when we were told we were not supposed to start marching until 2 hours. So I took this chance to walk around the contingent area to check out which group are represented in this years Pride Parade. 

One thing I noticed was the proliferation of companies represented and lots of technology companies. I don't know if this is a good or a bad thing. Maybe the Pride parades have evolved to be more inclusive and this is the result of that? I also noticed that the pride contingent is definitely bigger this year compared to several years ago.

Here are the scenes from my walk around the contingent area. Enjoy!
