PHOTO ROUNDUP: Gay Philly Comes Out For AIDS Walk Philly

It was a crisp autumn morning in Philadelphia, but thousands turned out for Sunday’s 28th annual AIDS Walk Philly. The event—which is put together by a dozen local nonprofits, including the Mazzoni Center, Action AIDS, and The Attic Youth Center—is a 5K walk that raises funds for HIV/AIDS organizations in Philadelphia. As always, gay Philly came out in full force for the cause. I’ve rounded up some photos of all the troopers below:
