Previous LA PRIDE Grand Marshals in recent history include Maxine Waters and RuPaul. LA PRIDE has a history of selecting diverse Grand Marshals and Honorees. Ethnic heritage is only one component of diversity.

I must be the only one who still does not see what al the hoopla is about, he came "out" after he retired, had he done it while still active, it would have been more impressive. I also have to wonder, is he the first black person to be Grand Marshal?

I wonder if the black kids will get treated better this year during West Hollywood "pride" with him riding in the float? Or still harassed by the LA County Sheriff and treated with contempt by the bars there? Sorry, not impressed at all.

Maybe one day Mr.Amaechi will be marshall at a gay black pride that would be news.
