Pride parade marches down Fifth Ave. 45 years after Stonewall riots, as Gov. Cuomo pledges to end AIDS in N.Y.

Rainbows flooded Fifth Ave. from midtown Manhattan to just past The Stonewall Inn in the West Village on Sunday. Mayor de Blasio and family were participants, and Laverne Cox, from the Netflix series ‘Orange is the New Black,’ and actor Jonathan Groff, from HBO’s ‘Looking,’ were the celebration’s grand marshals.
