Yesterday was Brooklyn’s gay pride festival. Conveniently, it happens in my neighborhood. It’s a much smaller scale production than the big New York Pride parade, but there is a street fair and a night parade. I had to be somewhere else last night, so I missed the parade, but my friend M and I walked over to check out the street fair. I took a few photos. You can click on them to see larger versions.
We stopped and got ice cream from the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. The truck can often be found near Union Square in Manhattan during the summer, if you happen to be in the city. I heartily recommend the Salty Pimp—that’s vanilla soft serve drizzled with dulce de leche, sea salt (!), and dipped in chocolate. You would think salt would be kinda weird on ice cream, but you’d be wrong; it’s actually delicious.
