Today's "Scene & Heard" page is a tribute to Pride in the era of COVID-19. Thanks to Steven Bridgers, who contributed several of these!

On what would have been the weekend of the Pride parade in Portland, the "Scene & Heard" page is like a mini Pride parade in print. Thank you, everyone, but especially Steven Bridges who drove around photographing. (Feel free to tag yourselves.)
