Washington gay pride parade draws thousands, briefly blocked by protest

Washington gay pride parade draws thousands, briefly blocked by protest
- Cheering spectators packed sidewalks as floats with rainbow balloons and papier mache rainbows snaked 1.5 miles (2.4 km) through residential neighborhoods several blocks north of the White House. In almost 90 Fahrenheit (32 Celsius) heat, some men went shirtless or donned feather boas.
Protesters who oppose the Capital Pride parade's corporate backing, which includes bank Wells Fargo & Co (WFC.N) and weapons maker Northrop Grumman Corp (NOC.N), briefly blocked the parade route and forced it to be rerouted.
The protest group, No Justice No Pride, said in a statement that Capital Pride also needed to add a transgender minority woman to its board and bar police from marching in the parade.
