Founded in 1993, the Queens Pride Parade is the annual celebration of the Queens LGBTQ population becoming a visible community and laying claim to its place at the table in Queens politics, culture, business and society. Filmmaker Richard Shpuntoff has documented every parade since the first one marched down 37th Avenue in Jackson Heights, Queens on June 3, 1993. Posted here are a number of images from a collection of over 4,000 photos and over 10 hours of moving image footage.
