We Love A Parade: Gay Pride
New York, June 28, 2015

Two million lined the route under a fresh summer drizzle waving rainbows as thousands marched.

Just two days earlier, a supreme decision announced marriage for all in these 50 United States.

Parade participants and spectators alike, all walks of life displayed signs of love and protest while dancing and prancing to the drum beat of celebration, the SCOTUS Marriage ruling.
