Savannah Pride shines despite rain, pays tribute to 9/11

Despite a heavy downpour at the height of Savannah Pride on Saturday, hundreds of people celebrating being gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender didn't let the weather damper their spirits to celebrate the 11th annual fest.

Cindy Ussery, 40, of Milledgeville, was holding her sleeping grandson, Jackson, age 20 months.

"This is his first Pride," she said. Ussery was there with her partner, Stacie McCant, 38. Jackson't tiny t-shirt read "I love my nanas."

"We've never been to Savannah Pride. We've been to Atlanta Pride," McCant said. Although they were soaked in the heavy rain that fell mid-afternoon, they said they wanted to stay for the full fest.
