Photographing Pride Month

How to Photograph June as Pride Month

June is Pride month. It's never too early to get ready for the upcoming events. And there are plenty of Pride related events, including the NYC Pride Parade, pre- and post- events, sailing boats flying their rainbow sails high on the Hudson, and much more.

How does one photograph Pride events? Check out a few ideas here. Also, here are a few images from the Pride events I have covered over the years. Hope you enjoy them.
