NYC's Gay Pride Event | June 2023


The 53rd Gay Pride event held on June 25, 2023, and I was amongst the many photographers who roamed Washington Square Park and its environs that were  jam-packed with revelers. While many colloquially call the event the Pride Parade, organizers refer to it as The March as a nod to the event’s heritage. The first march was an un-permitted political protest of anti-LGBT policies and attitudes.

In recent years, The March has grown to include more than 700 groups with millions of spectators. According to the City's politicians, about 1 million people showed up for the 2023 event...as far as I could tell from my 3 hours in Washington Square Park, a quarter of those passed through it.
