On 29th June 2014, Chennai saw a group of loving, caring and awesome people come together and march for Chennai Pride 2014 .
And then it started raining. Run Vikram runnn!!
Phew. That was a good shower. Cooled down the temperatures and has symbolically kicked off the Rainbow pride march. Good job nature.
Come together y’all! Lets take some pictures now.
That bird looks a bit fishy. I know! Take a pic with it!
No questions there!
Now where is the Nirmukta gang! Oh here they are.
Lets start marching already! Its getting late now.
Unfurl the colors!
Now start walking!
Lol! Look there. Bigots!
We shall overcome!
377! Down Down!
PETA? Join in…
Holy crap! Yes. So even this essay online is against the order of nature!
Keep walking now!
These kids are loud. Allow me to march in peace!
Phew. We are tired from all the marching. Bring out the refreshments!
That’s one Happy Ramki.
I can point fingers too!
And with that we wrapped up the march. A joyful event with crucial importance, the annual Pride march at Chennai came to an end.
