Every year, I make it a priority to attend NYC’s Pride Parade. Why? Well, because I am a proud ally, and while the gay community always shows up big for the event, sometimes I feel like not enough allies come out to support it. Also, it is, in my humble opinion, the most fun event of the year. But I don’t just go because I support the legalization of gay marriage in all 50 states. It’s much more than that. I’m there to support diversity, tolerance and individuality. It’s the one place where any person (gender, sexuality and race be damned!) can go and count on 100 percent acceptance. Wear what you want to wear, act how you want to act, be completely who you are, and everyone will not only embrace you, they will applaud you. It’s a celebration of self. And I enthusiastically support that. Here’s a picture my friend snapped of me doing me. Click through for some pics of the my favorite people at Pride this year.
