The lack of No. 7 service didn’t slow down the thousands of people who gathered along 37th Avenue in Jackson Heights on Sunday for the 21st Annual Queens Pride Parade and Festival.

Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community along with allies marched to music and celebrated their sexual identities and families.

There was also a moment of silence to honor those who had been killed as the result of hate crimes.

Welcome to the discussion.
