Gay Army private Bradley Manning was stripped of his grand marshal status at Pride 2013 in a controversy that will not be soon forgotten. Supporters honored Manning today with one of the largest parade contingents, if not THE largest contingent in the Pride Parade.

The Bradley Manning Support Network contingent has marched in San Francisco Pride parades for the last two years. They said that no matter what the LGBT Pride Celebration Committee's decision, Manning IS their grand marshal.

After initially naming Manning as a grand marshal in late April, the committee board reversed itself two days later.
