Alex McCord, Gov. Cuomo and the 2011 Gay Pride Parade NYC [135 PHOTOS]

The Village was ablaze with celebration and excitement Sunday as the 42nd Annual Gay Pride Parade took to the streets of mid and lower Manhattan. The parade comes only two days after the New York Senate voted to legalize same-sex marriages in the State of New York. NYC Gov. Andrew Cuomo was the obvious hero of the day, leaving the McCords from Real Housewives NYC as the obvious zeros. Alex and hubby hugged the outer edge of the route in extreme effort to assure camera's like ours caught it.

Duke It Out: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

The policy, which was introduced in 1993, has essentially stood all of this time as a way of saying 'you can be gay in the military, as long as nobody knows about it'.

I admit, I’ve put off talking about gay marriage here for a while, in part because, well, I went to a liberal arts school in NYC – I have way too many gay friends to really be impartial here. Then last week, the assistant managing editor of the Notre Dame student newspaper resigned during the controversy over an anti-gay joke that appeared in the paper’s comic strip and I realized that this is an issue that still affects us all.
