Despite a fatal shooting the night before in the Castro, Sunday's San Francisco Gay Pride Parade was a smashing success, with tourists and locals alike enjoying the city's biggest event of the year. Proving God (or whatever) does, in fact, love and approve of the gays, the sun came out today for a warm and festive Gay Pride Parade.

Here are a few pics of the parade itself, along with images of assimilation resistance group, Gay Shame SF, and their counter protest.

Stay tuned for pics from the Dyke March, Trans March, and Civic Center revelry.
