Where and When: Liberty Avenue, between Ninth and 10th streets Downtown on Saturday.

All About Pride: The streets were packed with eager partygoers laughing, dancing, and instagram-ing the night away. "It was a perfect night to celebrate Pittsburgh Pride. Chaka Khan and Magic! had the crowd dancing all night and the community and its allies were in full celebration mode. Mother Nature clearly believes in equality," said Christine Bryan, director of marketing and development for the Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh.

Quotable Moments: "Tonight is about celebrating love. No one should ever tell you who you can love. I'm proud to be here to support equality for all," said Vita Chambers, one of the opening performers for Chaka Khan. Lazaro Arbos, another opener and "American Idol" season 12 alum, added: "When we all come together, regardless of who we are, that's when we can move forward." Even County Executive Rich Fitzgerald weighed in on Pennsylvania's marriage equality law: "It's about time!" he declared as the crowd roared.
