2021 New York City Pride March
"The Fight Continues" was the theme of this year's NYC Pride. In spite of all the progress made by the LGBTQ community, there are still many battles to be fought.
I joined the Pride March last week to capture the event. Since last year's March was canceled, this year's took on an especially urgent tone.
The day began with a press conference featuring three of the NYC Pride March Grand Marshalls, as well as New York Senator Chuck Schumer and Attorney General of New York Letitia James.
