  1. Looks like fun was had by all!

    White guys are such size queens. Photo 8 is a real hottie

  3. Pic 31… WOW.

  4. I was there on one of union stalls who supported black pride and also I was one of the inspirational speakers – we support and fight for the rights of Black LGBT people and we were totally missed off in the pictures and even news – that shows a sad disrespect for people who fight for equality rights and also the founders of black rights who fight now and in the past for equality rights and it was totally missed – it only shows people who looked sexy or different or performed

      Jay – I can understand your frustration but that wasn’t a very ‘inspirational’ post. Were you there as an inspiritational speaker or simply to have your photo on Pink pages? I am sure there were many others who also spoke and it’s about the pride and not the photo ops. I work with NYC Pride and don’t get upset about not having my photo taken. At a time like this when Pride marchers have molotav cocktails thrown at them in Poland and Russia has outlawed pride marches I think having one’s photo posted on a website is the least important. :)

      1. I think jay is allowed to have an opinion gomez and I agree with him . the cliched men without tops is so 90’s

        1. ONE of the 32 photographs shows a man with his top off – hardly a cliché approach!

  5. Well, nice pics…. but what a rubbish way to show them! Haven’t you guys at Pink News heard of thumbnails? (all the pics on ONE page, then letting the readers select one to open and expand)… Having to open 31 different pages is crazy!

      Well said. I’ve been pissed off about this for ages!

    Racist and diversive.

    1. Spanner the day that black people can live without the possibility of encountering racism these events will continue

        They will live without racism before we will live without homophobia.
        I just find splitting minorities within minorities pointless and self-serving.
        Support your race and your sexuality, but not at the same time, it’s too excluding.

        1. Clearly not for the people who took part.

          I don’t think it’s really up to people who’re not part of a minority to instruct those who are on how to organise their lives. It’s also perilously close to those who say “There’s no ‘heterosexual pride’, so why should there be a gay pride?”
