Jackson's LGBT Pride Parade: 'It Was Much Love'

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — The organizer of Jackson's LGBT pride parade says authorities thought it might be rowdy, but it was, in her words, "much love."

Temica Morton says she's wanted to hold such a parade for three years, and was glad to see it happen, in spite of a misunderstanding with police.

It took several blocks for parade marchers to organize into a solid group.

A few hundred people watched.

WJTV-TV reports that at the end of the route, some marchers got into a shouting match with protesters who used loudspeakers and signs to accuse them of sin.
