Went to Pride 2019 yesterday with a friend of mine. Never saw so MANY people on the streets of Manhattan. Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets for the largest LGBTQ celebration in the world. It was the first time WorldPride was held in the US.
The march coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, considered the catalyst for the modern gay rights movement. The march came at a time when LGBTQ rights are under threat in the US, but the tone and messaging from parade goers was celebratory and optimistic.
Took lots of photographs. Here are some that summed Pride 2019 for me.
