Pier Dance 2007

After the march, we take off our heels and head to the Pier Dance. This is the end of Pride Weekend, and is always beautiful weather with a breeze blowing off the river. This year the music was mellow trance-like, and the featured performer was Broadway star Idina Menzel who sang live a remix "Defying Gravity" from Wicked. After that, the sun was down, the Empire State Building was lit up lavender, and fireworks exploded over the Hudson.

All you need is love.

The crowd watches the fireworks.

Happy New York City Pride 2007!

For more pics of each of the participants from "Long Live the Queens" check out the page of Thomas Locke Hobbs, our official photographer. Each year he flies out to document the glamour, the gutter, the glory of our parade. He's also whittled down his 1200 plus photos to some 100 on a flicker page you can get to from his site.
