Pride on parade

The Annual Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride March is one of the most colorful, popular and peaceful public events in New York City. On this, the 36th anniversary of the March, it is important to note that only three and a half decades ago, the police routinely raided the city's gay bars and arrested the patrons.

Today, not only do the police march in the parade (along with the mayor, both of New York's senators, and numerous other politicians), a specially-painted NYPD recruitment van actually serves as a parade float. The center stripe down Fifth Avenue is painted lavender, the lights atop the Empire State Building glow with the same hue, and a rainbow flag flies above Brooklyn's Borough Hall.
