God's Love We Deliver

This is the God's Love, We Deliver float at the Gay Pride Parade from yesterday (Sunday). The parade route started on 50th Street and marched down 5th Avenue to 9th Street before proceeding to the Village where all night parties continued until the wee hours of the night. I caught only about 45 minutes of the parade near Washington Square where this photo was taken before I left to meet my friend for a late brunch.

God's Love, We Deliver, where I volunteered as a kitchen helper for 5 years, provides free nutritious meals to men, women and children in New York City and Newark, NJ who have AIDS, cancer or any other serious illnesses. Volunteers usually work one three-hour shift per week where we chop, dice, peel and mince hundreds of pounds of potatoes, onions, carrots, celeries and other vegetables, which will then be cooked and packed for delivery the next day.

So what do you think of the girls on the float? Do you think they are "real girls"?
