Just as in 2011 the day of the Stonewall Pride Festival and Parade started off rainy and overcast but the weather ultimately cooperated and the event went on as planned. This year I had no intentions of filming the event… I wanted to attend and enjoy it as a spectator for a change. But when I heard the Motiv8 Vocal Liberation remix of the song “Freedom” by Erasure and realized that Andy Bell would be the headline performer, I changed my mind and filmed as much of the event as I could.
