Gay Pride NYC: Pride March 2012 (SLIDE SHOW)

Gay Pride marchers celebrated the first anniversary of New York's Marriage Equality Act as they strode down Fifth Avenue.

More than a million people swarmed Fifth Avenue for the 43rd Gay Pride March on Sunday, when revelers danced, shimmied, sashayed and strutted their way to the West Village, where the Gay Pride movement began. Grand Marshal Cyndi Lauper proved her worth as a gay icon, resplendent in a crimson bowler to match the cherry convertible in which she rode.

Passionate red was the color of the day, appropriate for this year's theme of "Share the Love," a nod to the first anniversary of the passing of New York's Marriage Equality Act. Couples throughout the parade waved signs displaying the length of their partnership, some in excess of five decades—the look of pride on their faces a heartwarming reminder of how far the community has come.

And those too young to remember a closeted society were as brash and outrageous as ever, sporting little more than G-strings and glitter as they gyrated through the crowd. The exuberant mix of pride and pageantry spilled through the streets of the West Village and up to Pier 57 in Chelsea for the Pier Dance and the Rapture on the River party, where the festivities were capped off with a rainbow of fireworks.
