Hundreds gathered Thursday at the 2014 MFA Stonewall Reception on Thursday. The Pride reception was an opportunity for those attending to mingle with pride parade grand marshals and politicians, as well as watch a fashion show. Politicians on hand included St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman and former Gov. Charlie Crist, who's the likely Democratic nominee to oppose incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott. The gay pride festival has been expanded to four days this year, with the popular parade set for Saturday and activities running through Sunday.
