Photos from Princeton Pride Parade

Here are some photos from the first ever Princeton Pride Parade that took place on June 22, which was also my first time attending Pride. Thanks to the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice for organising the event, and to the Princeton YMCA for hosting it. Also thanks to the mayor and the members of the Princeton Borough Council for enthusiastically endorsing and helping make this event happen.

The Philadephia Freedom Band lead the march. Their mission is to provide a safe place where any LGBTQ+ and allied individuals can play music.

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is one of the main gun reform advocacy groups in the United States, founded after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Desi Rainbow Parents & Allies is an organisation for working for LGBTQ+ acceptance founded by South Asian families and friends.

I saw many dogs marching (or resting!) among us.

The amazing drag queen and Miss Gay NJ winner, Lady Victoria Courtez was among several great performers that day.

The Princeton Fire Department also showed up for the festivities!

When the actual parade part was over, we headed to the YMCA for inspiring speeches and entertainment. In between, the band played right outside the YMCA. I got to twirl a flag and dance to the beat, but I wasn't good at either.
