New York City held its 53rd Pride parade Sunday.
Here are some of the scenes from that parade and related events shared on social media.
1. ‘We’re Here, We’re Queer, We’re Coming for Your Children.’
In a clip that has gone viral on Twitter, marchers at the New York City Drag March, which was held Friday, chanted, “We’re here, we’re queer, we’re coming for your children.”
One holds a sign that says, “Drag isn’t for CISsies.”
Men wearing almost nothing but Speedos twerked and danced on a parade float sponsored by the Chinese Rainbow Network, an organization that claims to be the “largest Mandarin speaking LGBTQ+ network in North America.”
The float also featured a woman wearing a red dress and boot stilettos pole dancing.
At the end of the float, one woman fully dressed stood in the corner and filmed the others sexually dancing on her phone.
3. ‘Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Don’t Assume Your Kids Are Straight!’
Some marchers shouted, “One, two, three, four, open up the closet door! Five, six, seven, eight, don’t assume your kids are straight!”
Kids wearing pink shirts and rainbow gear marched along with the adults.
One little girl on a man’s shoulders wore a transgender pink, white, and blue flag as a cape.
4. ‘Stop Touching Me!’
K. Yang, an activist advocating for female rights, was verbally harassed and assaulted while protesting in the middle of a Pride gathering.
The video shows ralliers closely shouting in Yang’s face, swatting her signs down and stomping on them, and grabbing and pushing Yang. Yang repeatedly shouted, “Stop touching me.”
5. ‘Clothing Optional’ Water Party
A massive reportedly “clothing optional” water party took place in Washington Square Park. Attendees are seen wading in one of the park’s fountains.
6. ‘We’ll Love Our Son Even If He’s Straight.’
A couple paraded their child down the street, holding a sign saying, “We’ll love our son even if he’s straight.”
They were followed by a group of men clad in leather underwear.
