Reality 4 / Pride 1992
Reality 4 / Pride 1992. This is footage from among the multitudes at Pride 1992, showing me with Kim, shot by Mal and Wayne. Neither of those two VHS cameramen is seen here, except for Mal’s DM boots when he aims the camera downwards near the end of the footage, there at the far end of Christopher Street (a corner of the world that felt delightfully more ragged and less manicured in those days, compared with now).
A long-vanished summer day in New York City: catwalking down the centre of 5th Avenue, the World Trade Center visible through the arch in Washington Square, then through Greenwich Village all the way down a teeming Christopher Street, to those West Side piers in the late-afternoon sunlight, with the World Trade Center popping up again across squinty-twinkling water further down the grand span of the Hudson River.
