Black and White Week- June 9, 2010

In celebration of Pride Month, I am posting this 1975 photo from the site Gilbert Musings. I don't know the name of the photographer, all that is stated is that it was taken on 1975 New York Pride parade. Recently, Pres. Obama declared June as pride month; before it was just pride week. And earlier this month, the US Embassy here in Manila celebrated Pride month for the first time. The new US Ambassador Harry Thomas said, “Discrimination is a waste of talent." I really hope to see a nationwide Pride parade here in the Philippines someday.
