Calgary Pride 2009
Calgary is thought to be the refuge of the urban cowboy. Cowboy hats aren’t uncommon, the Stampede is always a huge draw, and oil’s the game. So on Labour Day weekend (a scheduling gamble made to avoid rainy weather, which has plagued prior Prides held in the summer), Stephen’s Avenue and Olympic Park had a Pride parade with a classic Calgary touch of BBQ sauce. More photos under the fold.

In Calgary, superheroes use bikes, apparently
In the wild, this would be an animal best to avoid...
Even the Mennonites got in on the love
It wouldn’t be a Calgary Pride without the gay rodeo
A giant freaking pride flag
The city workers were great at keeping the whole thing in order
Olympic Plaza was packed - as was the dance floor
