NYC Pride March with The New Jewish Home / by Tadej Znidarcic

This year I again documented staff, residents and friends of The New Jewish Home that participated in NYC Pride March. I had worked with staff and residents during my Hillman Fellowship's project on Elderly Care and it was wonderful to catch up with Barry and some members of the staff. It was the second time The New Jewish Home participated in The March and it looks it might become a tradition. Unfortunately, Doyle, who was the heart of last years group passed away and we marched in his memory. The atmosphere was jubilant and the people along the route loved our group. It's hard to beat marching down the 5th Avenue surrounded by thousands of screaming and flag waving supporters.
