PHOTOS: Studs, Queens And Big Ang Come Out For NYC Pride

On June 16, New York City’s LGBT Pride Rally officially kicked off Pride Week in the Big Apple, but the feelings of celebration and community were buoyed all week long with special events across the city, including burlesque performances at Therapy, a beer blast at the Eagle (above) musical superstar Katie Thompson, cuties, and drag divas at IndustryMob Wives’ breakout star Big Ang Raiola at the Midtown Loft for Pride: A Deeper Love, and an outrageous pool party at the Thompson LES Hotel.

    So that’s what we are about … OK. I guess. Bars and half-nudity.

    Cynicism aside, a few of these pictures are great. Very mixed crowds and happy people.

    Most of these people need to put on some damn clothes.

  • Making up stuff is fun!

    I just don’t get the point of Pride.

    @MoJo: it’ll never happen. Queerty wants that revenue stream in a BIG way. They instituted that strategy awhile ago and I’ve not seen any indication of them trying to reverse it.

    Yeah, this pic is not from Pride Weekend. It’s from the week before.

    Hot pics, guys. @Robert in Jersey City. The article says “Pride Week” and I’d say Folsom was definitely part of “Pride Week” I think it’s cool they added Folsom to this – I come up every year from Sunday to Sunday and Folsom is always the first thing we hit. Sexy guys indeed.

    If we as gays wanted to make a statement, half nudity isn’t the way. If we really wanted to show our gay pride, then we would appear as we appear all the time. Go to a gay pride festival dress the way you go to work. Show the public who we really are. This half nudity isn’t cutting it. It makes us look like sex fiends. Sorry, but that’s my take on it.

  • Colin

    @Macmantoo: You are correct.

    Once again the photos are wonderful and diverse. I would hire JJ Keyes in a heartbeat to capture my events.. From a marketing point of view, these images capture the fun and diversity of the pride festivities.
