Love and Pride: At the start of the Drag March in Tompkins Square Park
Participants in the annual Drag March last night gathered in Tompkins Square Park for the walk over to the Stonewall Inn.
With this being the 25th annual Drag March — coupled with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising — the crowd was larger and the mood even more festive than in previous years. (Gothamist described the March, which stretched two Avenue blocks, as "sexy, provocative and rowdy.")
Shortly after 8 p.m., the March left the Park and headed west along Ninth Street, marking the start of Pride Weekend.
