New York Pride March 2013

Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and their allies marched earlier today from midtown Manhattan on Fifth Avenue to Greenwich Village for this year's Heritage of Pride Parade. This year's march was a particularly festive occasion, due to the recent Supreme Court Ruling that it was unconstitutional to ban gay marriage. One of the grand marshals was Edith Windsor, who only days before won the Supreme Court case to grant same-sex couples federal marriage benefits. Joining her were musician and activist Harry Belafonte and Earl Fowlkes, head of the Center for Black Equity.
