PHOTOS: Knoxville Sings Its Pride

The seventh annual Knoxville, Tenn., PrideFest was attended by more than 20,000, according to local TV station WATE. That's a long way from the few hundred who participated in the first few years. The 2014 PrideFest theme “Live. Love. Be. PROUD!” was happily displayed on floats, T-shirts, and hats during the event, held Saturday. Thanks to the folks at for providing these photos shot by Amy Williams.
