NYC Gay Pride Parade 2013 - GrambsPhoto

CONVERTED: That's Senator Chuck Schumer holding the rainbow flag in the 2013 Gay Pride parade down Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. The New York Democrat became a supporter of gay marriage in 2009. The 2013 parade came just days after the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, a law barring federal government recognition of same-sex marriages. Schumer had voted for that bill in 1996.
