My friend and documentary photographer, Bill Kotsatos, has been active in the equality movement for the last few years. He has journaled the Washington, D.C. equality march in 2009, and led photo shoots for the Standing On The Side of Love campaign. He emailed me some photos that he'd taken at the 2011 New York City Pride Parade. On that lovely weekend, New York City felt truly alive. I hope these photos give you a chance to feel it too.

[Caption from Bill's site] New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo marches in the gay pride parade in New York on June 27, 2011. Earlier in the week, Cuomo announced passage of the Marriage Equality Act, granting same-sex couples the freedom to marry under the law, as well as hundreds of rights, benefits, and protections that have been limited to married couples of the opposite sex.
