As August quickly trips away, it is time to review the PRIDE season and all the amazing and wonderful queens who graced us with their fabulous selves. While this list is BY NO MEANS exhaustive, enjoy some regional notes and photos below from all around this great globe of ours!

First, OBVIOUSLY, from sfgate.com, San Francisco pride!  Special thanks to Mikkel Elbech for the fab shot!
