'Orange Is The New Black' Stars Jackie Cruz, Yael Stone & More Are Living It Up At The NYC Pride Parade (PHOTOS)
It's only midway through, but the 2015 NYC Gay Pride Parade will go down in history as the most historic parade since the tradition started in 1970. For the first time in United States history, same-sex couples can marry in all 50 states. With the parade taking place just three days after the groundbreaking Supreme Court ruling, the celebration takes on a whole new meaning. This year, actors from of one of TV's most LGBQT friendly show are on hand to join in the festivities — stars of Netflix's Orange is the New Black are at the NYC Pride Parade, and they look like they couldn't be having a better time.
Leading the group is Jackie Cruz (Flaca), who seems to be in full Pride mode this Sunday, June 28. Leading up to the big event, Latina magazine handed over control of their Instagram feed to Cruz, and she has been posting away ever since. She is joined at the parade by her costars Adrienne Moore (Black Cindy), Yael Stone (Lorna), Lea DeLauria (Big Boo), and OITNB writer/producer Sara Hess. Not only have they ladies been working the crowd, they also have their own float in the parade, a gesture of just how much OITNB means to the LGBQT community and how much the community means to the show. Check out the photos below to see how Cruz, Moore, Stone, DeLauria, and Hess are celebrating this historic parade and amazing week with fans:
Hess captured Moore and Cruz goofing around as they got ready for the parade. Hey, friends don't let friends get on floats without a boob check.
Moore and Cruz took the ultimate celebration shot as the parade began.
DeLauria Sports Epic Shirt
Like her character Carrie "Big Boo" Black, DeLauria is out and proud. I think Boo would love DeLauria's Pride shirt.

So much cute! Moore, Cruz, and Stone found an adorable junior activist in the crowd.
