NYC Gay Pride 2007!
This Pride post is a little late, but better late than never! Edson and I thoroughly enjoyed this year's Pride festivites, and I just wanted to throw a few images from our colorful experience up on the blog. I've attended many, many Pride celebrations in my life, but this was one of my first in New York, and it was great fun. The Parade was a complete blast, and it began with this gender-bending (hobo?) below. He really made our day.
And what Pride parade is complete without it's own larger-than-life rainbow flag, fluttering down the street like a giant roll of toilet paper, marking the city like a juvenille vandalizing their neighbor's yard? Fun times!
Who wouldn't love a weekend where grown men dress like their favorite baby dolls from childhood? This is what makes America great, I tell you. I'm dying to have tea party with these little sweethearts. Aren't they adorable?
Here we have one of the many obligatory floats filled with beautiful man-candy. Do you think they're modeling Delta's new pilot/steward uniforms? I need to trade in my Sky-miles...
And I just love this guy...he's so super-jazzed to be there. I don't know how these guys on stilts do it.
This made me want to cry. It reminded me of MY two Moms. I miss my Mom and her girlfriend and wished they could have marched with me.
Okay, now this guy's got absolutely no inhibitions whatsoever. I'm not sure what he was going for, but you gotta' give him credit for going after it fearlessly. I just hope he used sunscreen.
Here's our friend, Luz, posing as well. Love those voodoo death-skulls in the headdress. Did this dude dance out of some sort of Amazonian witch-doctor tribe? It's so "Indiana Jones and the Temple of doom".
After the parade, we were exhausted, and I was sun-burnt, so we stopped by one of our favorite West Village cafes for drinks and dinner. Our buddy Armando, and Jay and his boyfriend joined us to relax. It was the perfect end to a great day. I love these guys!
