Proud to Celebrate Pride
Pride Month is celebrated in June to commemorate the Stonewall Uprising where a private gay club was raided in New York City in 1969. The riots from this event were thought to be the beginning of gay power movements, and today, along with the LGBTA community, their friends and supporters, the city comes alive with celebrations all month long. One party not to be missed is the famous Pride March which takes place on Sunday, June 30 at noon featuring more than 550 marching contingents and over 100 floats.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the riots, and for the first time, WorldPride has made its way to NYC, and the world will join in the celebration. The parade starts at 26th Street & Fifth Avenue weaves through areas of the Flatiron District, Greenwich Village, and Chelsea. Will you be there?
