My friends and I took to the West Village of Manhattan at the intersection of Christopher Street and Gay Street to document the festivities at the Gay Pride Parade. We set up just a stone’s throw from the former Stonewall Inn, where a police riot in 1969 thrust the GLBT movement out of the shadows and into the American conscience. It may seem like a slow progress of acceptance, but sometimes the turning points in history seem so recent.
