My second Pride parade was much more inspiring than last year’s, for the mere fact that NY had just passed the marriage bill. It was fabulous, touching, and nothing if not sassy. Below, for your viewing pleasure, are some of my pictures from the day (they get progressively blurry as my album goes on, since I was drinking Four Loko through a straw (and later poured wine into that empty can)).
It was amazing to be an a place where the atmosphere was so open, excited, and optimistic. Everyone was making friends, and truly celebrating family in all shapes and sizes. Touching to see so many little kids who have the opportunity to grow up in a much more accepting world.
