Who had the craziest Baltimore Pride outfit?

crazy mohawk pride flag dudeOn my way to Gutter Magazine's Glitterball Saturday night (more on that later), I strolled up Charles Street, through the thick of the Baltimore Pride festival. 

It was fierce!

"Baltimore has a lot of gays," I overheard one woman say to her friend. It does indeed, and they were out in force Saturday. I loved seeing some of the outrageous get ups.

One guy was wearing nothing but these spandex daisy dukes and a glow stick around his neck.

After taking a peek at the Sun photo archives, I can see Mr. Daisy Dukes was only the tip of the iceberg. I love this photo with the orange mohawk and rainbow flag. The Oakley shades are a nice touch, too.

Did you see any crazy Pride outfits?

Hah, saw a guy wearing nothing but tighty whities with holes cut out in various places. that was interesting.

and a group of four women in big neon colored wigs, leggings and bras. That was fun.

damn, there is no other festival quite like pride :)

Two guys in leather, one being lead around by the other on a leash.

Game. Set. Match.

@Kungpow12 -- Wow. Just ... wow.

Thank you Sam, for covering Pride. It was ignored in pretty much every other news source.
Yeah, we have a lot of "gays" and that's why the food is good here and the parties are fantastic.

wait, two guys in leather w/ leashes gets the game set match?! did they not have the cage at druid hill park this year? i love the cage, guys in leather are a normal part of pride! but it was too damn hot on sunday to actually walk around anywhere so maybe they didn't.

completely non-related, just bragging, some friends and i got to ride the dc eagle float on the way to the dc pride parade! it is amazing how many people will smile and wave at a bunch of queers in leather chaps just riding down the street :)

The Charm City Roller Girls were sorry we couldn't make Pride this year, we were busy winning our game against Kansas City. We did make sure our entire team was decked out in rainbows in honor of the day.
