Images of Pride: NYC Heritage of Pride Parade 2008

City Council Speaker (and out Lesbian) Christine Quinn, NY Governor David Patterson, and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.




Grand Marshall and transsexual actress Candis Cayne (Dirty Sexy Money). Candis moved to NYC at about the same time I did, and I remember seeing HIM (yes, him) at Boybar, and buying gum from him when he worked as a cigarette boy at Roxy.





IT'S MR. SULU, BITCHES!!!!!!!!

What great pictures! It looked like a great time. I'd love to visit New York for this event...I do love a celebration!

I think I need a shirt that says, "It's SULU, Bitches!"

I think Michael Musto would be happy to know that someone else remembers Candis Cayne's earlier occupation. These were great photos (that beat the pants off of what I got on my camera), and it makes me want to travel and visit different Pride Parades every year.

Sailor - that's how I remembered Candis being at Roxy, by reading it on Musto's blog. The cigarette "girls" weren't officially allowed to sell gum (the club didn't want gum sticking to the carpeted floors), but Candis always had some bootleg gum stashed away for sale.

A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do...
