“Nosotros No Tenemos Armas Para Echar A Pique Sus Fuerzas Navales,
Pero Tenemos el Arma de Echar a Pique Su Prestigio en El Mundo.” Albizu 1930

OLR@Pride Parade

The Vida/SIDA contingent was led by a young woman dancing in peacock feathers, and our contingent all wore bright orange t-shirts, which read “Libertad para Oscar,” followed and chanted for his freedom. Thousands were in the crowd and many asked who he was, after we explained, they also joined our cry to “Bring him home.” We danced, marched and paraded to the sound of Bomba and Plena, to free Oscar at Pride.
Our Queen danced and saluted people along the way. Youth jumped over the fence to join us, because they knew us from Humboldt Park, and felt free to express their pride in both their heritage and their identity. They recognized our work as building awareness and respect for LGBTQ youth in Paseo Boricua. For two miles we sang to Oscar and it felt like he was with us.
