Brooklyn resident among Pride Parade grand marshals

Posted: Updated:
BROOKLYN -

One of the four grand marshals welcoming tens of thousands of attendees to this weekend's New York City Pride Parade is Brooklyn's own Krishna Stone.

News 12 met with Stone Friday in Clinton Hill to learn about how she's gearing up for the parade.

A dedicated activist, Stone has spent her career raising awareness for HIV/AIDS and fighting for LGBT rights. She has worked at Gay Men's Health Crisis for over two decades.

She says that while there's still a lot of work to be done, she's proud of how Brooklyn residents are fighting for equality.

While the Pride Parade has been held in New York City since 1970, this Sunday's parade will be televised on a major television network for the first time ever.
