The NYC Gay Pride Parade is quite an event. It runs down Fifth Avenue for fifty blocks, and this year it drew a million spectators. With my handy press pass, I got to walk with the parade inside the barricades instead of outside. It was a real experience, and I got some amazing photos. Here are just a few of them:

The NYC Gay Pride Parade started to commemorate an anti-gay riot that took place in 1969 at a gay bar in Greenwich Village. These are the people who were actually there that night. They were greeted by some of the loudest cheering I've ever heard.
For the rest of the photos I took at the parade, see here.
