The parade corridor, on 4th Street, from Gass to Stewart opportunities, shone with additional street lighting, multi-color light sticks and glittery outfits put on by spectators and individuals.

“Color our World with Pride” was 2015’s style, Solorio stated. Some drifts showcased music and dancing while Clark County emergency situation vehicles flashed their lights.

Rithy Khim, 21, cheered, jumped, stretched his arms and waved his rainbow flag, and scarf, which matched his T-shirt. He existed to celebrate equality. “We’re all equal and we just want to be dealt with the exact same, much like everybody else.”

2 of his friends appeared simply to support him. Khim said this year’s parade is unique since of the Supreme Court’s choice on same-sex marriage.

Brittney Hinau, who wore her hair loose and red, described herself as being pansexual and echoed Khim. “These are my individuals,” she stated, spreading her arms large. “I’m right here for this love, this joy, the rainbow, the enjoyable.” She admired Nevada’s choice to allow same-sex marriage and said the nation is altering.

“It’s happening. It’s going to stay in this manner,” Hinau stated. “And this is the world today.”

With the recent court decision, Solorio hoped more individuals would don’t hesitate to be open about their sexuality, without worry. “Even those who may have been frightened in the past, now they are willing to be more open and true to themselves.”

Thousands of people of all ages grinned and cheered as the floats passed by. The event drew households, couples and singles, numerous of whom brought their animals.

Hinau’s conclusion: “Love will be a good thing. Everybody will be accepted, ultimately.”
