PHOTOS: In response to a series of violent anti-gay attacks last week, members of New York’s LGBT community gathered outside Madison Square Garden and marched through Chelsea toward Jackson Park on May 16.

The peaceful protest rally was organized by direct action group Queer Rising to address the disturbing increase in homophobic violence, seen last week during three separate incidents within days of each other. A fourth attack was later reported outside popular West Village bar Pieces.

The event drew some 150 LGBTs and allies marching in solidarity, armed only with homemade signs, informational flyers and a unifying sense of purpose.

      Every now and then I wish that I were in New York City.

      This is one of those times.
