I had big plans to write-up our experience of yesterday’s Pride Parade but tomorrow is Katherine’s Birthday and we started celebrating tonight. I did have time to go through the pictures I took and do some very basic editing. This group today is from the Pre-Parade. We arrived at our kick-off location (38th and 5th) at 10am to prep the car. We started to join the parade at 2:30pm. This is those 4 hours.
Tomorrow I will show you some shots of the parade itself.
As always click on a picture to enlarge it.

Nice people but not Friends (Quakers)
Nothing need be said
Continuing to wait and celebrate
Ready to roll

Official starting point
Katherine asked me to go to Morningside Meeting with her today. It is held on the 12th Floor of Riverside Church. She never has asked before so I did. When we walked in we passed a Muslim Service occurring in one of the Inner Chapels and watched the choir lining up to head into the church for the 11am service.
If you have never been to an unprogrammed Quaker/ Society of Friends Meeting…it is a very different experience. Katherine is not, at this time, a member of the Meeting but is on the Hospitality Committee and attends as often as she can.
