10 Colorful Photos from New York City's Pride Parade
It was a day filled with costumes, cheers, and colors—New York City’s annual Gay Pride Parade never disappoints. June 26th was basically one big party for the city as millions of people marched through the streets of Manhattan, celebrating for hours. And, of course, it was all captured on camera.
It’s estimated that 30,000 people marched in the actual parade, which included a series of floats. A few crowd-pleasers: an Orange is the New Black float with a number of the show's characters, a Google creation, and many more. Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton even jumped in on the action and walked for two blocks with Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio near the Stonewall Inn waving a rainbow flag.
This year’s parade was dedicated to the victims of the massacre at Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando. Tons of people held up inspirational signs during the event touting sayings like, “Love is love is love is love is love.”
