Photos: Philly Pride 2012

HughE Dillon captured highlights from Sunday's Gay Pride celebration

This year’s Philly Pride not only kicked off with a block party on Friday night, but continued through the weekend with special events, like the Dyke March and William Way’s Homecoming – and culminated in the annual parade and party on Penn’s Landing.

G Philly was honored to be a part of the events. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth on Penn’s Landing again this year. One of our favorite photographers (and the man who’s always on the scene) HughE Dillon captured some great highlights. Enjoy!
