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
Gramarossa 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.
