Following the tradition a sheer endless stream of reveler marched down 5th Avenue to Christopher Street in the "West Village". This year they jubilated the decision of the Supreme Court to grant same-sex couples federal marriage benefits.
The parade was heavily commercialized. There were advertisements for Citi, Chase, Whole Foods Market and many more big companies. And the contenders for this year´s New York City mayor election participated in person or were represented by their fan groups.
