August! It came, we sweated, we complained and now it's heading out. Weird. Here's our monthly photo review wrap-up, where we visited everything from hidden dog beaches and No Doubt's triumphant homecoming shows to something called an "insanewich" and Lil Wayne. Aw.
From coast to coast, gays and lesbians took to the streets with pride.
