Kelly Ripa Posts Throwback Photo of Herself Riding Through New Orleans on the Brightest Rainbow Float

Kelly Ripa said, "Gay rights!"

Well, not exactly, but she did just post a fun throwback slideshow on Instagram of New Orleans Pride back in 2017.

She captioned the post, "Happy Pride y’all!" followed by five rainbow and rainbow flag emojis. In the photos, Ripa and her pals—including actress Rachael Harris and Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears—can be seen riding through the streets atop an ornate (by which we mean very rainbow) float. Their outfits are equally colorful, with Ripa rocking what looks like a coral, turquoise and white tunic.

The Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host has been something of a throwback queen over the last few months. Most recently, she shared a birthday tribute to her mom, Esther. In the caption, the star wrote, "Happy Birthday Mom! Even though you are no longer acknowledging your age, I’d like to acknowledge your wisdom. You are very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very wise. i love you and this photo of you with gram and pop pop."

Between the high cheekbones, megawatt smile and bronzed complexion, the two could totally be sisters. If only we could see Ripa in this classic hairdo...

Keep the throwbacks coming, Kelly. (And Happy Pride to you, too.)
