Family of slain teen honored at NYC’s Pride Ceremony at City Hall


New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn headed a ceremony at City Hall in New York titled, A Celebration of LGBT Pride – Marching Forward Together as the city that spawned the gay pride movement at Stonewall begins its Gay Pride week festivities.

“Progress Takes Time, equality doesn’t come overnight,” Speaker Quinn announced at the pre-ceremony press conference regarding recent set-backs in the march toward full equality, “Like every protest march any of us has ever been in, sometimes you get stuck in traffic.”
