Watsonville's first Pride celebration was a huge success, with 325 marching through the streets and over 500 enjoying a liberating party in the Plaza. The party is probably still going on... fotos and audio (MP3) included below.
El primer evento de Orgullo en Watsonville fue un gran éxito, con 325 personas en marcha y más que 500 disfrutando una fiesta liberada en la Plaza. Chanza que sigue la fiesta... hay fotos y audio (MP3) en adelante.

An ambitious start for Somos GLBT and the organizers of Watsonville Pride: More than five hundred enjoyed a Sunday in the Plaza. The day began early with hundreds lining up to march through downtown and kick off a full day of celebration.

As the march passed in front of Watsonville's new City Hall, a lot of honks and screams of support from folks who are (perhaps) unaccustomed to such sights... part of what made today so amazing was the simple fact that this doesn't happen every day here. As organizers Maria Perez and Olga Fuentes said last week, the goal wasn't to put on the event, but rather to gain visibility for the GLBT community in Watsonville. Today's march demonstrated strong support for the queer community.
Cuando la march pasó por el centro municipál de la ciudad, había muchos gritos de la gente pasando, tal vez quienes no estan acustombrado ver la calle así. No es algo común en Watsonville. Como dijeron las organizadores Maria Perez y Olga Fuentes en la semana pasada, presentar el evento Pride no es la meta, sino quieren dar visibilidad a la comunidad GLBT. La Marcha y todo el día demonstraron un apoyo fuerte para este comunidad en Watsonville.

As the march returned to the Plaza, Maria and Olga embraced with hundreds lined up behind them, ready to encircle the plaza and begin the festivities. It took a big team to put on this event, but it might not have happened without the work of these two. Hear more about the history, motivations, and organizing it took to put on the event here http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2008/08/22/18528773.php
Cuando llegó la marcha a la plaza, Maria y Olga compartieron un abrazo fuerte con los y las cientos de personas atrás, list@s para rodear la plaza y comenzar la fiesta. Si era un equipo grande que juntó el evento, pero sin Maria y Olga, quizás no había sucedido. Escucha a la história, la motivación, y el proceso de organizar Pride aqui:
