Thousands of people clad in rainbow colors marched Sunday through Greenwich Village and up Fifth Avenue for the annual Gay Pride parade, a massive celebration of LGBTQ identity.
One of this year’s grand marshals was tennis legend Billie Jean King, along with transgender advocate Tyler Ford and civil rights organization Lambda Legal.
Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” blared from loudspeakers as people marched, danced, stomped and watched along the route. The attire at the 49th annual parade was loud and proud – rainbow suspenders, leopard heels, thongs and fairy wings.
