This past Sunday I attended my first ever Pride Parade. In the span of three hours I got glitter poured on me, had my hand kissed by a very cute girl, and learned a few things.

1. New York is not only full of proud people but proud landmarks as well

Seriously when her car drove by everyone went wild and it was understandable, not only was it her court case that brought down DOMA (RIP), but she and her late wife Thea Spyer were one of the first gay rights advocates in NYC. I honestly don’t know what it is about her, but the minutes she steps (or in my case rolls) into your presence your heart just lights up. I have a little bit of a girl crush on her, and can you blame me? Look how sexy she is at 83!
