Park Slope Celebrates LGBT Pride

PHOTOS BY DONNA ACETO | The 17th annual celebration of LGBT Pride in Brooklyn included a 5k run in Prospect Park on the morning of June 8, followed by a street festival on Park Slope’s Fifth Avenue and an evening parade through the neighborhood. The parade included grassroots activists like those from Queer Rising and the Lesbian Herstory Archives, plenty of young people like a dancer affiliated with the Ali Forney Project and a group of spectators with attitude, and some Brooklyn-grown politicians, like former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who is running for mayor, and City Councilwoman Letitia James, who is seeking the job of city public advocate.
