Marching, Loving, Playing At Queens Pride!

A Very Special Day!

I marched in yesterday's Queens Gay Pride Parade with the Hon. Christine C. Quinn (D-Chelsea), Speaker of the New York City Council, and a tireless champion of LGBT rights. Speaker Quinn is the first openly gay Speaker of the City Council, and she led the City Council contingent in the Parade PROUDLY, with great energy and enthusiasm. It was a privilege to march with the Speaker. Her staff and my fellow marchers were friendly, polite, and full of PRIDE!

These three sweethearts pleased all with their lovely regalia!

Nothing makes a splash like those feathers and glitz!

Pink feathers and sunshine...irresistible!

This year's Queens Pride, organized by City Council candidate Daniel Dromm, was packed with throngs of people from all over NYC. a central theme this year was the pending Gay Marriage Bill, which has yet to be voted on by the New York State Senate. There were plenty of petitions circulating, urging our Senators to vote for the passage of this historic legislation. It was great to see the LGBT community turn out in such huge nimbers to enjoy the festivities and declare their PRIDE! There were stage performances, all kinds of vendors at the Pride Festival, delicious food, and, of course, all the fantastic people who comprise the LGBT Rainbow!
