The 27 Gayest Things at STL's PrideFest Weekend

"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family," begins one of the U.S. Supreme Court's most memorable passages in its Friday opinion legalizing same-sex marriage. That timing made the weekend's PrideFest a celebration of joy and love, a huge civil-rights victory party and a march toward a more perfect union. And here are the gayest (gay-happy, gay-victory, just plain ol' gay) things that happened there. All gay photos by Steve Truesdell. See also: 9 Awesome Couples and Families at St. Louis' PrideFest.
