The first ever Reston Pride!
Spreading the word!
There were plenty of late night planning meetings!
Our last planning meeting. We were ready!
Wow - getting real!
This says it all.
Early Saturday morning the rainbow arch went up.
It's a thing of beauty.
Even the back is beautiful. Love wins!
A little decorating...
It's time for Reston Pride!
Within an hour we had over 300 people! By the end of the day, there would be 1,200 people!

This was definitely a big surprise!

That's the spirit!
Love is love is love is love....
Rev. Dr. Debra W. Haffner had this idea... and here we are!
A great day for family and friends!
