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.

Can't think of anything printable to say here. Use your own dirty mind.
