Brooklyn Pride!

The opposite of the Manhattan Mega 4-Hour-plus Pride Parade is the organic, almost barely-organized charm of Brooklyn Pride. No crowd control barriers, no corporate advertisements masquerading as "pride" floats, just a wildly enthusiastic mini-crowd of locals lining 5th Ave in Park Slope, one person deep, so every one has a front row view. As the parade moves north, from its start at 15th Street to the end at Union, spectators melt into participants, creating one unified mass of colorful celebration.
Happy Pride Brooklyn!
