On Sunday, June 26th, Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer marched with his City Council colleagues in the NYC Pride Parade along 5th Avenue. Celebrated annually since 1969, this year’s LGBT Pride March was particularly meaningful, taking place exactly one year after marriage equality was made the law of the land and two weeks after 49 mostly LGBT youth were murdered at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando.

Majority Leader Van Bramer marched with his Council colleagues, staff, and husband, Dan Hendrick, his partner of 17 years. The couple wed in 2012, making Majority Leader Van Bramer the first openly LGBT elected official to get married in Queens.
