The celebrations since the recent rulings that tore down DOMA and Prop 8 continue. Over the weekend, the NYC Gay Pride Rally was held at Pier 26 on Friday June 28, 2013.

The highlight of the day was when unofficial LGBT queen Lady Gaga gave a short speech in support of the gay community and sang the Star Spangled Banner

The pop star closed the national anthem in a special way, with,”For the land of the free, and home for the gay,” to great applause.

Lisa Murphy caught the entire scene from up close, and now her video has gone viral, garnering over 700,000 views just over the weekend. The event was also covered on RollingStone, HuffPost, and DigitalJournal
