Police officers on bikes and on foot, some with bomb-sniffing dogs, patrolled the crowd, which includes scores of teenage girls carrying “Disarm Hate” signs, opposite-sex couples carrying rainbow flags and families with children.

The enhanced security didn’t mar the party atmosphere Sunday as the parade with men in glittery white wings walked on stilts and women in leather pants rode motorcycles in downtown San Francisco.

Richel Desamparado, of Oakland, marched carrying a photo of Orlando victim Stanley Almodovar. She said she felt the need to remind people the fight for equality is not over.
