  2. I’m sure you could find photos of this kind of crowd congregating at past Pride weeks (Especially outside the Stonewall), but the pure joy and relief and excitement and hope on so many faces and knowing the context in which these were taken … I think New York has brought the meaning back to Pride.

  3. Haha why is the main picture that one instead of the other posted picture of the same group?? That guy’s face is hilarious! Well done on all of the pictures. Now let’s get california on board…

  4. We were in Brooklyn when we found out it passed and immediately went to Stonewall to celebrate. Coming up from the subway to see what I later learned was over 1,000 people already there, waving flags, cheering, kissing and hugging was absolutely incredible and so moving. We managed to get inside the bar and the highlight was definitely when the DJ played empire state of mind – never heard so many people sing a song so loudly and with so much conviction: let’s hear it for new york…

    So amazing. Completely overjoyed I was there. Amazing pictures as always, Robin!

    • Ditto – absolutely cannot believe our good fortune to be born in such a hopeful and dynamic world.

      Now for Australia (supposedly one of the great LGBT-friendly nations in the world) to catch up and legalise the shizz out of same-sex marriage.
