The NYC PRIDE MARCH started in 1970 as a civil rights demonstration on the first anniversary of the STONEWALL Uprising.
Now it is one of the world’s most famous LGTB events. Today there were 350 marching contingents…………37,000 marchers and 2 million spectators.
It was a day for LOVE…………and pride in being gay.
It is a year when gays are under stress over TRUMP’S policies. There were many groups in the parade today focused more on protest rather than celebration.

I hope I get an invitation to the house warming!
BABY SPARROW fell out of his nest this morning. Momma bird went nuts! I scooped him up and put him in my garden. He is running scared…………but did not fly away.
I named him/her………….AMIGO!
I’m on the streets every day with my camera……..I never leave home without it.
But there thousands of photographers in New York………all with their cameras………doing the same thing as me……….looking for a unique shot of life in New York.
BILL CUNNINGHAM…………….New Yorks’s most famous photographer………..covered the Runway Shows, the Ballet Gala, The Met Opera, all of New York’s society events……….and he did this for 60 years. Twice weekly he did fashion spreads for the New York Times.
Last year Bill passed away………….and is greatly missed on the streets of New York.
