Hundreds turned out Saturday despite threatening weather for Little Rock's first Pride Parade, an emblem and encouragement to greater acceptance of equality for LGBT people. 

Lots of photos on the Facebook page for the parade, including a couple shown here. They included many floats, including some built by kids in high school Gay Straight Alliance organizations. Young people spell the eventual turning of the tide of discrimination in Arkansas. Hurry the day.
