Along the way, I took tons of pictures, so here are some of the highlights from the walk, as well as a few artsy ones I threw in at the end (click for the large versions):
Some of the eight thousand plus people who participated in the AIDS Walk this year. The buildings with all the crazy angles in the background are part of the Wold Market Center, which served as the start/finish point.
The Sin Sity Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were there to entertain the crowd. A really awesome group that does fundraising for AIDS charities and advocacy for queer rights and safe sex awareness while "striving diligently to keep their sense of humor and never taking themselves so seriously that they forget to have fun."
Pictured here is Mother Loosy Lust Bea Lady.
I'm not sure what these guys were fighting about, but it probably had something to do with too much mead and too few wenches. That usually leads to trouble. They are actually from the Empire of Chivalry and Steel, an organization that promotes the culture and traditions of the Middle Ages through historical re-enactments.
This is a really cool drum group, called the Las Vegas J.A.C.L. Kaminari Taiko, that they had set up along the route.
I got a bit of a kick out of everyone climbing up the Clark County government building. Reportedly, there was one cop who tried to stop people at first, but then gave up after he realized that he would have to spend all day shooing thousands of people away. This is actually toward the end of the walk after most of the people had come down.
Between the height and the freakishly giant hands, I don't know how this guy isn't in the NBA. (I'll be here all week folks.)
This is the World Market Center. I just liked the abstract effect all the different colors and angles had when you zoom in real tight on this section of it.
The "Dollhouse" with one of the giant new condo towers being built rising up above it in the background. Due to the current economy, both are pretty much abandoned right now.
