What Are You Excited About?
Right now, I’m excited about going to the New York City Pride Parade on June 26. I went to my first one six years ago and, five years ago, I started going with a group of college friends I met through Allies (that was our campus GSA [Gay Straight Alliance], except we couldn’t call it that because we went to a Catholic University).
The group always consists of my friend Candice and I, sometimes with the addition of our friends Bobby and Sam. I would love for everyone to be able to come this year! I was afraid I was going to miss Pride because I should have still been in Korea, but now that I’m not, I can’t wait to go!
We usually get into the City early and find a spot in the 20s on Broadway. We almost always take a little walk through Eataly and get something (read as gelato) to eat. It’s usually too hot to stay at the parade for its entirety, so when we can’t take the heat anymore we like to grab some lunch (and some margaritas) and explore the Village.
It’s a nice little tradition I really look forward to every year. Most of these friends live in different states and have different schedules, so it’s nice to take a day to see everyone and catch up.
Here are some pictures from last year’s Pride:
