On Friday night, drag queens and their admirers once again gathered in Tompkins Square Park to kick off the annual Drag March to Stonewall Inn. This year’s festivities honored Gilbert Baker (aka Busty Ross), the artist, activist, and rainbow flag creator who died earlier this year. We spoke to participants like Brian Griffin (aka Harmonie Moore Must Die), who helped start the march with Baker in 1994. Watch that video above, and then play the video below for a taste of Sunday’s official NYC Pride March.
