If I ever had any doubts about whether Las Vegans would turn out for gay Pride, they were allayed on Saturday at Pride Festival, which fell the day after their nighttime Pride Parade (sound familiar, Houston?). Dozens of booths, several live concerts and hundreds, even thousands of visitors — all very graciously and sincerely wish you “Happy Pride.” And perhaps the oddest aspect of it? This pay-to-attend event seemed to be peopled by a fair number of straights who just came out for the food, drink, music and fun. And it’s so far away from the Strip, you wouldn’t even know you were in Nevada.
