The True Winners of Pride Parade 2012

Once again, Houston's pride parade beat the heat and parking hassles and became an entertaining event.

Crowd estimates aren't generally close to accurate, but the accepted figure for Saturday night was about 150,000.

The Montrose was alive with floats, supporters, protesters, reunions and politicians.

There were mostly winners in the event, but some specific categories stood out. And here are the winners of those categoies.
