NYC Gay Pride Parade 2014, A Family Affair

20140629_113321xLaverne Cox from Orange Is The New Black hit TV show served as this year’s Grand Marshall. Naturally, we took a selfie. She once waited on me at the Union Square Coffee Shop. And now look at her, a world renowned celebrity in her own right. Stay blessed Laverne! Not to be out done, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio donned on his very own rainbow tie complete with a flag in hand. He marched the entire parade route with his lovely wife  Chirlane McCray and daughter in super hot pants. This would be the Mayor’s first Pride March. I have been covering this event for quite sometime now and I must say he would be the first Mayor that would leave is usually heavy security group to reach out to spectators standing by to say hello, get a few high fives and take selfies! A true people’s mayor that I hope would one day consider running for the highest office of the land in Washington DC. Lord knows, I would certainly vote for him!

As expected, the event had no shortage of corporate sponsors on huge floats which included Citibank, Wholefoods, Delta, Yahoo, Google, Macy’s, and all manner of banks, just to name a few. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger each year! Some people also made it a family affair by bringing their kids to take in the show. This year, the event went over by an hour which resulted in me loosing my VIP press pass to attend the after party, Dance On The Pier to see Demi Lovato perform. Media check in was closed by 630 and I got there shortly after 7 when the parade ended. Oh well, I guess until next year. Needless to say, I had a great time making new friends and capturing the images featured below. Click on the images to see a larger version.

PS: Do not mistake the fine looking police officer shown below for a person in costume. His name is Dominic, one of New York’s finest who worked long hard hours getting the streets ready from 7am till midnight after cleanup! He does look hot though…wink! Ladies, you’re welcome! 🙂
