New York’s Diverse Population Speaks Out. Feb-May 2010.

b’h

One reason (out of many) New York City will always be close to my heart is its innate ability to give everyone a chance at being a true New Yorker. Come to the city, live there for a few months, and poof! You are part of the energy.

Seeing people of various ethnicities, races, nationalities, and sexual orientations coming out to speak their mind on countless occasions all over the city confirms this statement. If they didn’t feel they were a New Yorker on some level, there would be no reason to take time out of their day to try to and create awareness for whatever might be on their mind. New York is an open forum to all, and only a few cities can compare on a macro-level.
