The NYC Heritage Of Pride March
The 2009 New York City Heritage Of Pride March commemorating the fortieth anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion was a booming success. I had the distinct honor and privilege to march once again with New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, the first openly gay Speaker of the NYC Council. Her record of leadership in city government, as well as within the NYC LGBT community, is long and distinguished. I heartly encourage all readers of this blog to vote for Speaker Quinn as she runs for re-election to the Council this fall. She is a true friend of the rainbow.
Here I am with Hollywood actor, witer and blogger Xem Van Adams, who joined us for the march down fabulous Fifth Avenue, all the way to Greenwich Village. Xem marched as part of his NYC trip, to make his bold statement of Pride before the world. It was a pleasure to have him with us. Other notables who marched with us included Da Doo Dirty Show hosts DJ Baker and Swanny River , NYC Socialites CEO Eric Parker, and promoter Giovanni Centurione.
Stay tuned, lots more pics and NYC Pride news coming real soon!
