NYC Pride’s Exuberant Parade Highlights TWU

Content from 2016 Pride


Turning onto 5th Avenue from 40th Street at just about 6pm, TWU’s Pride contingent boasted a float, a City bus, a big banner, and high spirits. Members danced atop the float as our DJ worked a powerful sound system and reminded the huge crowds along the parade route that the marchers are the subway and bus workers who move New York. Parade judges near Washington Square park saluted the TWU and welcomed Recording Secretary LaTonya Crisp-Sauray for a photo op. The late-step off was due to the huge number of floats and marchers this year, with many wanting to make a statement in the aftermath of the tragic events in Orlando. If you weren’t there, enjoy the (slide) show!
