Outing of the month: PRIDEFEST !

Now lets start with my outfit. This shirt (which I've posted about here) promotes the fight to stop bullying, The sneakers go perfectly. I wanted to carry a handbag rather than a shoulder bag which would cover my shirt or a backpack which I would have to constantly remove from my back to put things in it an take things out. Luckily the Ed hardy bag worked. I was ready for my day. What is most important about Pridefest in NYC this year is that this past Friday the bill to legalize Gay Marriage in New York was approved. Definitely an iconic moment for my city, so of course a lot of people came out to celebrate and there was tons of excitement. It feels as if I am part of a revolution, a fun revolution lol. I didn't get to see the actual march/parade but I was there for all the festivities, performances, and over priced food ! I saw a lot of people with wonderful outfits, t-shirts, and nothing but rainbows. I took as many pictures as I could of me and my friends and of course other things that caught my eye. Think of this post as a picture diary of the event:
