Street Style: L.A.’s Colorful Pride Parade


The L.A. Pride Parade took over West Hollywood this past weekend, celebrating its 45th anniversary commemorating the Stonewall Riots. LGBT rights have come a long way since that June in 1969, and along with the discussions of the Supreme Court's pending ruling on same-sex marriage and the growing recognition of transgender rights, there was an outpouring of love and celebratory festivities. Sam Comen photographed some of the hundreds of thousands of attendees amidst the sea of rainbows, sequins, and leather on Santa Monica Boulevard, capturing plenty of face paint, bondage harnesses, and platform stilettos.
