About 5,000 people hit the pavement for Saturday's lesbian and gay pride run.
It's the 31st running of the five-mile race collaborated between New York Road Runners and the LGBT running group Front Runners New York.
The race comes a year after the state legalized gay marriage. Some of this year's runners are still celebrating.
"It was huge last year obviously and it feels like we're still enjoying it," said one runner. "This is just kind of like capping off a great year for the community both in New York and across the country. Hopefully more gains to come."
"It's wonderful," said another. "I think it's a great stride for the community and we are all working towards equality for everybody."
"We're here with a group of about 16 people," said a third. "Some are in the community, some are allies. We're just really excited to run."
Part of the proceeds will go to Broadway Cares, which is a national nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant making organization.
