Out in the Streets

In case you haven't seen this mural outside the Second Avenue F stop. For Pride Month, the wall features the work of Brooklyn-based photographer-documentarian the Dusty Rebel... who incorporated his photos here "to celebrate the queer community and our long history of using the street for performance and protest."

As he wrote on Instagram:

As went through my archive, I got excited to create something that celebrates historic moments I felt honored to capture: The Drag March, kiss-ins, Gays Against Guns, Queer Liberation March, The Dyke March. As I pasted these photos of queer icons, mentors, activists, and friends, I felt you all with me out in the streets.

I really love this and from one photog to another KUDOS and admiration. Also, my sincere appreciation to EV who continues to provide breaking news and cultural coverage for free for the neighborhood even during a pandemic and at long last historical civil rights protests the likes of which have not been seen in the East Village since Dr. King was murdered in Memphis.
