Had an exhausting blast covering the NYC Gay Pride March. I showed up just past noon (step-off time), talked my way through the barricades (having a big-boy camera helps) and then proceeded to shoot the entire thing, from noon until seven. I ran down the route until I caught up with the very first floats, featuring grand marshals Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi, then worked my way back, eventually parking around 26th Street and shooting the parade as it unfolded around and past me.
In the gallery above are 40 superhot guys from the parade; they represent different types. If you recognize any of them, let them know I am—as of last week—not merely single, but husband material.
Also, I'm on Grindr.
Plenty more like this in the gallery!
After you get all hot and bothered by the gallery, let's starfuck, with all the stars and notable names I encountered:
Had no idea I was shooting Chelsea Clinton until she was on me, then a Secret Service dude was almost on me.

What follows are my absolute favorite shots from the parade, not counting any of the hottie photos:
