  • Hello Sweeties!
    I am Pictoria Secrete (the statuesque queen in the Canadian Flag dress) from Winnipeg, Manitoba CANADA and was visiting Richmond, Virginia to see friends. As luck would have it, your Pride happened to be going on and I was proud to take part in your festivities! What an amazing time I had and everyone was so friendly. During our Pride in Winnipeg, we also had Martha Wash as our headliner act on our free-stage. But she had to rush off for her appearance in the Tony Awards. So I was thrilled and pleased to see her there and she let me get a photo with her. What an amazing woman!
    Thanks for making my trip so wonderful, Virginia!
    Hugz and kisses
