Stonewall 50 – and WorldPride 2019
With all the Pride celebrations around us in June, I keep thinking back to the opportunity I had to commemorate Stonewall 50 up close in 2019, which was celebrated to mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York. It was also WorldPride NYC 2019, which made it a very big celebration indeed.
I was lucky enough to land 2 VIP tickets to view the Pride parade, and was right at the point where the parade kicked off on 25th Street and 5th Avenue, drinks, food and all. I even made it to the local news! So of the many many many pictures I took at the parade, I am sharing some of my favorites
The parade had its share of celebrities, here are a couple –
I loved to see New York being a part of the parade of course!
While the parade was full of Queens, there were a couple in particular that stood out at the parade.
I loved seeing so many companies being part of the parade, and all the personal expression which was all so fabulous.
There was even a snake at the parade, I mean which parade would be complete without one?!
As it says at Stonewall Inn, Pride is a Riot…
