Brooklyn Pride Week: The Adjustment Bureau Visits Brooklyn Borough Hall

Brooklyn Pride Week kicked off yesterday at Brooklyn Borough Hall, where Borough President Marty Markowitz joined folks from the Brooklyn Community Pride Center, city officials and Brooklyn’s LGBT community.

BP Markowitz presented a proclamation to Brooklyn Pride Chair Zully Rollan, and spoke in favor of gay marriage equality.

The rainbow flag was raised over Borough Hall.

Meanwhile, across Court Street, men from the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property were asking drivers to honk for traditional marriage.

They handed out booklets to passersby and played bagpipes. Something about the way they looked caught our eye. Of course there were the red sashes, but that wasn't it.

We kept puzzling over it. The fedora hats . . . We suddenly remembered where we had seen these guys before.

It was in the film The Adjustment Bureau, where mysterious men wearing fedoras conspire to keep two lovers apart. According to IMDb: In the face of overwhelming odds, a man must either let his lover go and accept a predetermined path . . . or risk everything to defy Fate and be with the one he loves.

Did the Adjustment Bureau visit Brooklyn Heights yesterday? Is The Plan always right? Will lovers risk all to defy Fate?

And most important, are fedoras coming back?
