Saturday Afternoon in Harlem: Harlem Pride Day Celebration at Marcus Garvey Park

On this day after same-sex marriage became legal in New York, we spent part of the afternoon enjoying the Harlem Pride Day fair and celebration at Marcus Garvey Park.

The crowds at the various booths of organizations, businesses, and vendors all seemed in a good mood for good reason.

As we're writing this, we just saw Harlem Pride president Carmen Neely on WNBC-TV speaking on behalf of everyone, expressing delight over marriage equality.

SAGE, the organization that has always done such good work for and with older LGBT folks, was an official sponsor of the event and also ran a SAGE Health Fair.

Marcus Garvey Park has some beautiful surroundings.

But of course today was about the people and organizations in the community.

It was a great day in Harlem and all over New York State.

We're grateful we got to go to Harlem Pride this year.

Wish I knew you were attending. I would have finally gotten a chance to say "Hi" in person. Hope you enjoyed yourself; my partner and I had a blast.
