PICS: Queens Pride 2013

By: Editors

One of the most ethnically diverse urban areas in the world, Queens has been celebrating the beauty of the LGBTQ community with the Queens Pride parade and festival since 1993.

Now the second largest Pride celebration in the New York metropolitan area, the event, which helped kick off Pride month on June 2, continues to foster the visibility of the LGBTQ community — as well as the many cultures and religions which make up the NYC borough.
