Drag queens and transsexuals waved from floats to the crowd as the annual Reno Gay Pride Parade was staged today in downtown Reno.
Police say about 600 to 700 people watched the 11th edition of the parade on Arlington Street.
Some participants say while the Reno area is becoming more tolerant of homosexuality, it's still difficult at times for gays and lesbians to find acceptance.
Laura Grotz is publisher of Reno Out magazine and a member of the gay and lesbian Stonewall Democrats.
She says the Washoe County Democratic Party registered voters at the peaceful gathering and she has never met any gay Republicans at the parade.
