Orange Is the New Black Cast Brings Litchfield to NYC’s Pride Parade

It looks like Orange Is the New Black castmates Danielle Brooks (Taystee), Samira Wiley (Poussey), Yael Stone (Morello), Matt McGorry (Officer Bennett), and Dascha Polanco (Daya) had a ball on the Litchfield prison float at Sunday's New York City Gay Pride Parade. Transgender activist and Litchfield stylist Laverne Cox (Sophia) was one of the grand marshals of the event, and marched separately with Dolores Nettles, the mother of Islan, the transgender woman who was tragically beaten to death last year. Meanwhile, Lea DeLaria (Boo) repped the show on the West Coast in San Francisco. There were some tasteful photos, but there was also lots of screaming, grinding, laughing, Instagramming, and selfie-taking. Because, pride.
