Brooklyn Pride Slideshow

Brooklyn Pride was pretty chill. It was extremely small comapared to the annual Manhattan Pride Parade, but then again, everything is small compared to the Manhattan Pride Parade. But Brooklyn Pride had more of the feel of a block party. Which, as Martha Stewart would say, is a good thing. What was really cool about it was that it was almost completely lacking all the corporate sponsorship and rampant mindless consumerism. I think the only corporate booths I saw at the street festival were Starbucks and Ikea (who both suck), and there were absolutely no corporate floats, which was such a relief. Very few politicians too. Borough President Marty Markowitz was there, sporting rainbow beads and a christmas tree light covered float, but Marty shows up at everything Brooklyn, and as he says "If you don't live in Brooklyn, you should move to Brooklyn."

Brooklyn Pride is in its 13th year.
