Participants hope Gay Pride parade will prompt anti-same-sex marriage politicians to reconsider – By Clare Trapasso – Daily News Writer

Organizers of this weekend’s Queens gay pride parade are expecting the event’s largest turnout yet as the push for a same-sex marriage bill appears to be gaining steam.

Participants are hoping to change the minds of three state senators in the borough who are opposed to legalizing gay marriage in New York.

“Most of the people who are going to be coming to the parade are going to be focusing on marriage equality,” said parade co-founder Daniel Dromm.
