Gay Pride Celebrations Rock the Social Media World

The last Sunday in June is officially Gay Pride Day, and today there were parades and exuberant celebrations breaking out on the streets of cities such as New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Istanbul and Dublin.

As you can see in our gallery of TwitPics, this year’s celebration brings Gay and Lesbian Pride Month to a close with a revolutionary atmosphere, thanks to the Same-Sex Marriage Bill signed into law on Friday for New York, the largest state yet and the sixth state in the U.S. to legalize gay marriage.

Join us in the outpouring of joy, gratitude, happiness, pride and relief as celebrants from all over the world share their pictures on TwitPic:
