#JVCrew at New York City's pride parade!
Since I attended my first Pride Parade three years ago, I decided to start a tradition in attending at least one pride parade each year. For this year, #JVCrew got the honor to walk in the parade along with New York State governor Andrew M. Cuomo and U.S President runner up, Hillary Clinton.
While walking down the parade on fifth avenue, the energy I felt in the city was unbelievable and something I have never experienced in previous pride parades. Looking at the people around, waving, shouting, showing their pride of being who they are, brought a smile from cheek to cheek and a motivation of pride and freedom I haven't feel in a while. A special thanks to Vanessa Cordova for allowing us to be part of this amazing parade along with Hillary Clinton and New York State governor Andrew M. Cuomo. And for making this important day another memorable day to remember.
