The Gay Parade, Santa Monica Blvd - 1994
Size: 100 cm x 70 cm (39 x 27 inches)
Just to the east of Beverly Hills, runs a section of Santa Monica Blvd which is the gay district of LA. Every year they put on a huge parade, which is as outrageous as one could imagine. In those days the mayor was gay, most of the police were gay, and even the tough gay Harley Davidson bikers wore sleeveless tee shirts over their well sculptured torsos. This picture was taken outside one of the cafes in the district.
