The 2016 NYC Pride Week wrapped up yesterday (6/26) with the annual Pride March (aka the parade), that began at noon and went til after 6 PM. Last year’s parade was very celebratory, as it happened right after the historic SCOTUS decision to legalize same sex marriage in all 50 states. This year’s was a bit more serious, with a tribute to the victims of the recent tragedy in Orlando, and lots of anti-gun stuff. Check out tons of pictures from the parade in the gallery above.
The pictures include appearances by Mayor Bill DeBlasio, Al Sharpton, and Chuck Schumer. Not pictured, but Hillary Clinton was there too. Despite it being over for him, some Bernie signs were there too.
The march also follows President Obama’s announcement on Friday (6/4) that The Stonewall Inn will be first national monument honoring LGBTQ Americans.
In related news, Vic Mensa dropped a pro-LGBT track yesterday called “Free Love” which features Le1f, Halsey, Lil B and Malik Yusef. Listen:
