On a perfect Oregon summer day, people dressed for comfort, for fun, to make a statement, or all of the above!

 

Artist Callie McGhee made face paintings for kids of all ages, including this rainbow masque for Kristina Wessel.

 

Rainbow flags and mixed-gender capes were fashionable fun at this year’s Pride Festival.

 

The Emcees for the main stage were from the Imperial Court and Friends.

 

Who has more fun than a Rainbow Girl and a Panda? Clover and Taylor say, “No one.”

 

Sally Sheklow and Enid Lefton pitched their tent and kicked back for the MainStage entertainment. Together since 1987, they were the first same gender couple married at “a Big Fat Jewish Wedding” at Temple Beth Israel in 1998. Both attended Pride celebrations in major cities and love Eugene/Springfield’s event best because it’s a big “family picnic”.
