The day of the march, we woke up to good news, the National LGBTQ Task Force was pulling their support from the march. At 4 p.m., I met Amanda Berman, the founder of Zioness, at a coffee shop in McPherson Square. We were exhausted, exhilarated, and nervous. We stared at each other and laughed nervously: Was anyone going to come? It was Pride Shabbat, and it was Shavuot. If five people showed up, I told her, I would be very pleased.
