Police told AFP that no one was seriously injured in the stampede. But many of them were injured under the blazing sun in low-lying Manhattan. The atmosphere of the parade was festive, but there was also disappointment with the US Supreme Court’s decision on Friday to end abortion rights. America’s second largest Pride Parade takes place in New York after San Francisco. This big pride parade was being held in New York on Sunday for the first time after the Covid Mahari.
