With its theme of “Rain to Rainbows”, the 44th annual Gay Pride Parade in New York City consumed Fifth Avenue yesterday afternoon. Even the threat of a little rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of parade participants and the many of us who lined up to come along for the fun ride. And, with the Supreme Court’s recent ruling striking down DOMA and California’s Prop 8 appeal, two million spectators, both gay and straight, came out to celebrate and show their tremendous love and support for this historic and timely occurrence of events.
For hours and hours, colorful and inventive floats inspired us to live life to the fullest. Some had their own deejays who played pulsating music from around the globe to keep the crowd energized and pumping. Politicians (current and perspective) were all represented and out canvassing for those precious votes, social activists and their organizations, and even a gaggle of gay New York Policemen were seen waving to the crowds that cheered, screamed and cheered some more. The energy level was high and extremely infectious.
It was one of the longest and largest Gay Pride Parades in history. The party was on and popping. A good time was had by all. Woot! Woot!
