San Francisco wrapped up a weekend of gay pride events with Sunday's always colorful Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Parade and March through the heart of the city.
Organizers say as many as 1 million people were expected to turn out for this year's 48th annual event.
More than 240 contingents, including floats, groups and other participants, took part.
This year's theme was "Generations of Strength."
As in previous years, the parade was being led by Dykes on Bikes, San Francisco's venerable group of lesbian motorcycle enthusiasts.
It concluded with a Civic Center celebration, where organizers say people could dance, mingle and "celebrate queer San Francisco."
