NEW YORK (WIVB) — Several people are waking up behind bars after the New York City Pride Parade.
Police say they arrested 10 people during the festivities Sunday afternoon.
Police say the protesters were sitting on the street in Manhattan, blocking the route.
Officers gave them several warnings before taking them into custody.
Before it, Gov. Andrew Cuomo spoke about equality issues at an annual breakfast.
“There is still discrimination. There are still stereotypes. There is still fear. There is still hate,” Cuomo said. “It lives in the shadows throughout society but it will never show its face in the light of day in the state of New York.”
New York City’s Pride March started in 1970 to mark the first anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.
Buffalo held its pride parade earlier this month.
