What a glorious day on beautiful 5th Avenue on Sunday June 26th, 2011. If the annual Gay Pride Gala Celebration wasn’t enough to get your juices flowing, the newly passed gay marriage bill brought the festivities to a crescendo.
Individuals from all walks of life came out in large numbers to celebrate. Governor Andrew Cuomo lead the parade followed by many a New York politician. The political tide is turning rapidly on sentiment regarding gay marriage and it doesn’t take a clairvoyant to appreciate that this issue will be significant in upcoming elections especially in New York State.
The latest statistics estimate as many as 70% of individuals 18 to 34 approve of same sex marriage. Enough of the politics, please enjoy my attempt to capture the euphoria associated with this wonderful day in super New York City.
