“Defiantly Different,” the theme of the 2018 Pride Parade, is apparent in these photographs of revelers as captured by Culture Trip photographers. This is a snapshot of what New Yorkers wore to the Pride Parade in the streets of Greenwich Village. “Pride means love and freedom,” says celebrant Kable Barhart, pictured below in a red swimsuit, denim cutoffs, and flower crown. “For me, pride is everyday, but today lets people really be free. Today celebrates us.”
