Fresno Pride Parade draws crowds to Tower District

FRESNO, Calif.

The parade and festival was sponsored by Community Link, a non profit that supports gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals -- and crowds of people showed up to take part.

"It's nice to come out and have support for gay and lesbian rights and marriage and see so many people celebrating," said Autumn Web of Fresno.

While Saturday's event was very much a celebration, organizers say it was also a great way to educate people about issues facing the LGBT community.
