Pardon me — you there, with the sequined gold hot pants and the matching boa and pillbox hat: Your pride is showing. Pride L.A. is in the air (and other places) this weekend, starting with the big Dyke March (not that the dykes are big, but the march itself is rather large) on Friday evening. Headliners at the weekend fest include Cece Peniston, Mya, Prince Poppycock, Estelle, Margaret Cho, Macy Gray and loads of others keeping the crowds glistening. Sunday's L.A. Pride Parade celebrates 41 years of post-Stonewall gay pride with more than 125 floats, bands, marchers and others, with Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir as grand marshal. Dyke March: San Vicente Blvd., south of Santa Monica Blvd.; Fri., June 10, 7:30 p.m. Pride Festival: San Vicente Blvd. between Santa Monica Blvd. & Melrose Ave.; Sat., June 11, noon-mid., Sun., June 12, 11 a.m.-11 p.m.; $20, $35 two-day pass. L.A. Frontrunners Run/Walk: Sun., June 12, 7:45 a.m.
