The celebrations since the recent rulings that tore down DOMA and Prop 8 continue. Over the weekend, the NYC Gay Pride Rally was held at Pier 26 on Friday June 28, 2013.

When Jonathan Allen turned 18, his parents kicked him out of the house. Not because he was a delinquent, and not because he was a bad kid. They kicked him out because he is gay. How sad and unoriginal. 

But that never stopped Jonathan from pursuing his dreams of being a singer. Alone in the world, he made it all the way to the America’s Got Talent stage to cover Luciano Pavarotti’s now forever recurring talent show piece Time To Say Goodbye

After the closing the song, the entire audience jumped to their feet, including all the judges. 

“Your family may have disowned you, but with your talent, this show has become your family,” said Howie Mandel.
