Bummer. One of the great NYC summer traditions has been nixed by City Hall. The mayor’s office has inexplicably denied a permit to Heritage of Pride for PrideFest, the street fair component of the Gay Pride March. The idjits in the mayor’s office are calling it a “new event” (even though the event is actually 15 years old) simply because they changed locations from the Village to Chelsea and are therfore refusing to issue a permit.
The good news is the parade will go on.
