Pride Parade

by cnorthcote


The Pride Parade was quite possibly one of the coolest things I have experienced living in New York. There was so much enthusiasm as the march made its way downtown.

The parade was quite a spectacle! There were plenty of crazy costumes, a few scantily dressed men, and a fair number of drag queens. However, my favorite part of the parade was when couples who had recently married marched through. Each couple held as a sign with their anniversary date as they followed the governor who made gay marriage possible. I also found the political show of support to be surprisingly strong. The mayor, the governor, and a senator were all present. In addition, the firefighters, as well as the police were in on the parade action.

It was an all around great event that encouraged equality and acceptance!
