I remember my first LGBT Pride March; it was NYC in 1984. That June, I was living in Chelsea -- not paying rent, just living there with my boyfriend on his working dime. He was 39, about to turn 40, and I was 19.
For the first time in many years, New York's Heritage of Pride Parade will have an economic justice contingent in the parade. The time is right for Queers for Economic Justice and our friends to stand strong with labor, and for labor to stand strong with us.
