Gay Pride Parade Hits New York (PHOTOS)

Sunday marked New York's 41st annual gay pride celebration, and with a bunch of gay and lesbian notables, such as Lt. Dan Choi, the famous "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" critic, and Judy Shepard, mother of Matthew Shepard, it was one for the books.

The march, which had a turnout of thousands, started on Fifth Avenue, and made its way down to Greenwich Village.

Take a look at pictures from the parade below.
