Pride was fantastic this year.

Every year, New York City comes together to celebrate and support the LGBT community. This year's celebrations were especially meaningful (if you don't know why, read a book!). People of all different backgrounds from all over the world took to the streets to relish in a long-deserved win for equality. As always, it was quite the spectacle
