Sculpture “Friends” By , Nnmandi Okonkwo

Nigerian sculptor Nnamdi Okonkwo created this monumental sculpture that stands outside of Fifth Avenue on the Park, a condominium building in Harlem. The sculpture stands right in front of Marcus Garvey Park and has been cause to much controversy. Many people claimed that the statue gave a bad representation of Black women but through it all the sculpture has remained to our delight.

Acceptance is crucial—especially when you are a teenager facing all the hurdles of growing up, learning who you are and establishing yourself in society. Add being LGBT, and you begin to see what it is that so many of our youth face today.  “GSA (Gay Straight Alliance) Network is a youth leadership organization that empowers youth activists to fight homophobia and transphobia in schools by training student leaders and supporting student-led Gay-Straight Alliance clubs in California and throughout the country,” said Daniel E. Solis, Southern California Program Manager.  [View Parade Photos from 2009]
