Here, the cast of the new Broadway musical participate in the parade from the top of a double-decker bus and celebrate equal rights. Marriage equality in New York State was made into law June 24, two days before the pride parade, when the State Senate passed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed the bill into law at 11:55 PM on Friday, less than two hours after the Senate passed the measure by a vote of 33-29. Couples interested in marrying will have to wait 30 days for the state to get its act together. Same-sex marriages will commence the week of July 25.
Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the new Broadway musical that officially opened at the Palace Theatre March 20, stars 2011 Tony Award nominee Tony Sheldon (Bernadette), Tony Award nominee Will Swenson (Tick/Mitzi) and La Cage aux Folles actor Nick Adams (Adam/Felicia) as "the trio of friends on a heart-warming, uplifting adventure. [They] hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship in the middle of the Australian outback and end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed."
