Happiness = Pride
June 22 - 24, 2007 is officially the happiest weekend I have had in my entire life. I spent the weekend taking photographs of the most uniquely talented and creative bunch of people I have ever been with and in turn made many wonderful friends along the way.I thank you all for demonstrating the diversity and pleasure of life to me.
I took 1000+ photos over that weekend. My Gay Pride New York 2007 (Flickr Collection) consists of the following Flickr sets:
Here are 200 highlights (my favorites) from the complete collection:
I haven't been able to jot down every single name and email addresses. Please feel free to identify yourself or your friends in the comment area of the photograph.

On July 7th, 2007, I finished processing all the photographs.
I was immensely touched by the humanity, diversity and the spirit of life from my experience, and I wrote a manifesto about the celebration of life. On the same day, I started the following Flickr groups to honor the men and women who have inspired and continue to provide support to me in the past, present and future:
Homo Magi is a term to describe a sub-race of magic-using humans in the DC Universe. The Homo Magi evolved in a parallel but separate line, alongside Homo Sapiens. Homo Magi and Metahumans account for most of the superhuman abilities in the DC Universe. (Wikipedia: Homo Magi)
Life Celebrates Diversity = all age + all attires + all builds + all classes + all colors + all cultures + all education levels + all flavors + all genders + all hair styles + all income levels + all interests + all lifestyles + all locations + all philosophy + all professions + all physiques + all races + all religions + all roles + all sexual tastes = all walks of life (Wikipedia: Diversity)
Meta Human is a term to describe superhumans in the DC Universe. It is roughly synonymous with both mutant and mutate (in the Marvel Universe) and posthuman in the Wildstorm and Ultimate Marvel Universes. Use of the term in reference to superheroes was coined in 1986 by author George R. R. Martin, first in the Superworld role playing system, and then later in his Wild Cards series of novels. (Wikipedia: Metahuman)
Meta Men = Men / Meta Humans
Meta Women = Women / Meta Humans
