The desert island float with the lesbians in the gay pride parade was called "Lesbians Of The Caribbean". This is a reference to the Pirates Of The Caribbean ride at Disneyland in California. The island itself resembles a scene at the end of the first waterfall drop, and the lesbians chasing other women around trees is reminiscent of the Spanish Villa scene that showed pirates chasing women around in circles.
