So on Sunday after a bubbly start to the day, creatures of habit that we are, we took our usual places along Santa Monica Boulevard to watch this year's Pride procession.
At the roadside along from Kings Road we watched the 2009 West Hollywood Pride Parade as it started down by Crescent Heights Blvd and gayly marched its way past us all the way up to Robertson Blvd.
Yesterday you saw a selection of the wonderful costumes and floats on display, today I thought I'd showcase some more of the performers who entertained the crowds all morning.
Some of the Parade participants quite literally entertained the spectators, with show-tunes, cabaret and dance numbers.
There was the classy Upright Cabaret float with live singers and band playing...
The Gay Men's Chorus belting out and performing a few Broadway classics...
It's quite a lengthy procession, with around 135 floats and groups taking part, so it's nice when the participants go the extra mile and put on a show. There's nothing like a bit of musicality to go with the creativity of the floats.
Spectacular cheerleaders entertain the crowds
And as with West Hollywood Gay Pride 2008, L.A. Cheer cheerleading troop were on hand to wow the crowds with impressive acrobatic tumbling, throws and lifts.
Pride is more than just a 'gay event' (even though around 400,000 gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, transexuals and every other flavour in the rainbow descend upon West Hollywood).
It's a fantastic opportunity to educate and interact with the local community of families, friends, churches, police force, employers, services and businesses.
Having said that Pride is also about belonging and being accepted at home, at work, in the community and the world at large.
There's always a lot of love and pride on the day, plus it's always a peaceful celebration (we play well with others).
And I'm all for self expression, but sometimes there are some sights better left unseen...
But good for them for having the nerve to be a part of the Parade and entertain the onlookers.
As well as being a time for celebration, the Pride Parade is also a brilliant time for campaigning with so much public attendance and media attention.
It was great to see so many people protesting Prop 8 and vowing to achieve equality and repeal the unfair act in 2010.
Support Gay marriage and equality by 2010
No more hate!
Equality for all
Support same-sex marriage
It's also a great time to remind everyone about practicing safe sex, whether gay or straight.
As you can see the June gloom didn't dampen anyone's spirits and as a reward, the sun broke through in the early afternoon as the Parade drew to a close.
Playhouse pirates get into character
I'll leave you today with some more West Hollywood hunks from this year's Parade.
I'll see you tomorrow for even more great images from WEHO Pride 2009...
