David Moyer, wearing what he described as a rainbow muumuu, cheered on as thousands marched down North Palm Canyon Drive Sunday for the annual Palm Springs Pride parade.

It was his fifth pride festival in Palm Springs. And even though he’s attended others in his hometown of Allentown, Penn., Moyer said the local festivities were more elaborate and energetic.
