The NYC Pride parade began in 1970 to commemorate the Stonewall riots that happened in 1969 and has been an annual tradition ever since.
Cinematographer, Daniel Lui, was able to film some special moments while marching in the pride parade. The video opens with an explanation of why the LGBT community marches every June and a quote from Lady Gaga, “We must demand full equality for all.”
As highlights from the parade are shown, the video concludes with Stonewall Inn (the end of the parade), and includes Harvey Milk’s inspiring speech, “Know that there’s hope for a better world. There’s hope for a better tomorrow. Without hope, not only gays, but those who are blacks, the Asians, the disabled, the seniors, the us’s – without hope, the us’s give up.”
