NYC Pride 2010

For the purpose of this photoessay, let's start with the first gay pride that I ever attended.  Which was 30
years ago, in June of 1980, when I took the AMTRAK from WDC to NYC to spend the weekend with my
best friend, Frank.  Who, at the time, shared a first floor apartment with at least two other guys at 165
Christopher Street at the corner of Washington Street in the West Village.

An Italian from Long Island, Frank and I had been close friends since, as freshmen, that we first met at
Easton dorm at the University of Maryland / College Park in September 1973.
