Utah Gay Pride

Pride is Humane

Today marks the last post in this week’s series from the 2012 Utah Pride parade and festival (if you’ve missed them, start here). It is, therefore, with great pride that I devote today’s post to the wonderful staff and volunteers at the Humane Society of Utah and their presence and participation.

My regular readers know of my commitment to working with HSU to promote pet adoptions and serve adoptable pets through my photography. There are so many ways you can help, too – and many of them don’t require your valuable  time! Please contact or visit HSU to find out what you can do to help.

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.

Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.

Prince Poppycock

The headline entertainer at the Utah Pride Festival on Saturday night was the extravagant and incredible “Crowned Prince of Absurdity”, Prince Poppycock. You probably saw him taking America by song on the 2010 season of America’s Got Talent. Pictured here upon his arrival from the Kingdom of Poppycock, all those present were quickly charmed by his magical merriment, vibrant voice and magnificent music.

This was one of those occasions when by pure chance I happened to end up at the right place at the right time: the Prince had just arrived and was about to be whisked away on a royal white … golf cart.
