Pride in New York

Lea DeLaria
Orange is the New Black star Lea DeLaria and her fiancée Chelsea Fairless led more than 60 exuberant SAG-AFTRA members down 5th Avenue in New York’s LGBT Pride March on Sunday, June 28, just two days after the Supreme Court’s historic ruling on marriage equality. SAG-AFTRA’s participation was coordinated by staff and members of the New York Local’s LGBT Committee.
