March Madness: A WorldPride NYC Photo Diary Comments (0)

Pride this year was exhausting for me, and — I suspect — for many. WorldPride was extra, and the parade was still going on past midnight.

IMG_1449*****I didn't, but was tempted.

I couldn't cover the whole thing because I am a human being, my dogs need a modicum of attention here and there, and I had a ticket to see Madonna at Pride Island, but I did manage to show up around 11:30 a.m. and last until about 5 p.m.

First things first — had to con my way in. I got to a checkpoint and just asserted that I was a photographer and needed to get to the front before noon's step-off. Having a real camera always does the trick, and I found myself sprinting to the front to do what I always do — start at the beginning, march a long way, then slowly work my way back. Best way to get most of the notable participants and to see as much of the parade as I can handle.

The Pride Main Event at the Javits Center, held Friday-Saturday, June 28-29, is not exactly where you'd expect to find me — but had you looked early enough, you would've.

I'd never been to any kind of circuit party, but since this was the biggest one ever (11,000+ tickets sold) and was going to feature some interesting performances fairly early on, I went.

Pier Queen: Madonna Wows 'Em At Pride Island Comments (0)

Madonna wowed 'em at Pride Island Sunday night, delivering a highly produced, tightly choreographed, four-song set that was miles away from the fast-and-dirty shows usually offered at the Pier Dance.

I covered the parade all day (and it went on until something like midnight!), so had to rush over to Pride Island (57th St. and the river), arriving around 7.
