A color photographic slide depicting several individuals standing at a New York Gay Pride Parade. At the top left corner is a bunch of red helium balloons. An American flag is at the center of the image, next to black speaker boxes, with multi-colored helium balloons above. A man wearing sunglasses, silver earrings and a black tank top stands in the center foreground of the picture. He is looking to his right with his lips slightly parted.
