Photos and Audio from Sistahs Steppin in Pride

This reporter is sorry to report that she woke up at the time the march began, and thusly missed the first two hours of Sistahs Steppin' in Pride 2006. But I did make it to the festival in Snow Park.

Hundreds of womyn were dancing, singing, chatting, and celebrating community in the East Bay. There were more vendor booths than I remember from two years ago. There was a "Jumpy" (I call them bouncy castles), with face painting and other activities for the kids. The performers were excellent, and I am sorry that I missed the Mammaz and Sistas in the Pit.
