Today, I was thrilled to be a part of an historic Gay Pride event in New York City.
Gay Pride 2011 was wonderful!! I have never seen a Pride Parade in NYC so jam packed full of people! It was the most well attended Pride Parade in NYC history....It was bloody amazing!
The parade was kicked off by the hero of the day, Governor Andrew Cuomo! And on his left was his girlfriend, Food Network's very own Sandra Lee!!
Marching with him was Mayor Bloomberg who, in this picture, doesnt look happy but the rest of the day was thrilled to be a part of this event!!
Next, ex-Governor David Patterson was on a float, ecstatic to be a part of this day. He was waving and smiling and signing posters....very nice man!
Here's one of the Grand Marshals - Rev Pat Bumgardner. I actually got to meet her afterwards and got a great snap with her!
In his very own stagecoach, actor Wilson Cruz!!
Senator Chuck Schumer was marching as well, so excited to be celebrating the legalization of gay marriage.
He actually stopped right in front of us and spoke for a bit.
The hot boys from BOXERS, NYC's gay sports bar!
Dont know where he's from (wish I did!!!) but if he looks this good, who cares?!
The stars of the new Broadway musical PRISCILLA - QUEEN OF THE DESERT!
And PRISCILLA's bus for the parade!!!
I went with some friends from NY and NJ and some theatre friends and even a Republican! YES!! A Republican! What would Glen Beck think???
What a fabulous day! I am so glad that I was part of history today!
