The Stonewall Inn

The Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village, all decked out for yesterday's annual Pride Parade. Stonewall is considered by many to be the birthplace of the gay rights movement in the USA. This year the parade took on special meaning with Friday's passage of a law legalizing same-sex marriage in New York.
