Orange County holds first-ever gay pride parade

- Orange County held its inaugural gay pride parade Saturday amid stepped-up security in the wake of the recent mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

The parade, on Main Street in downtown Santa Ana between Washington and Third streets, went off as scheduled with no disturbances or arrests, Santa Ana Police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said.

The parade was part of the OC Pride Festival, which continues into this evening at the Yost Theater at 307 N. Spurgeon St.

The headline performer is singer-songwriter Steve Grand.

Rep. Loretta Sanchez, D-Garden Grove, is scheduled to speak as well.
