Post-Pride celebration in New York City.

My second favorite night of the year (my first) is the post-parade Pride celebration which usually takes place on the Piers of the West Side Highway in Lower Manhattan.  The NYPD seem to be limiting that spot more and more so this year the streets bore the colorful, messy and lusty brunt of this rather bacchanalian celebration. Mostly composed of lesbians and transgendered people of color, tens of thousands of revelers drink, flirt, smoke blunts, grope and dance into the night.  That is, until the mounties clomp in to ruin everything.  But, until then, it’s seemingly a free for all and it’s positively sublime.
